Maharashtrian Thali

Day 7 BM #56 - 

Here is a mini Maharashtrian Thali (Panchmel Dal, Cucumber Salad, Peanut Thecha, Kobi Wadi and Puran Poli) which I served up at home. Thanks to Varada, I was able to get some idea of what I can cook. I must say that these Kobi Wadis were a surprise find for me. They were an instant hit at home.

I had to make these wadis twice as my husband sneaked his way into the refrigerator and finished off the last few of those wadis which I had reserved for the thali picture :). It was such a hilarious incident at home that I am sure we will laugh about it for some time to come.

Kobi Wadi ~ Steamed Cabbage Cutlets

Method Of Preparation -

In a bowl, add all the ingredients listed except the seasoning. Mix well and knead into a stiff dough adding as little water as needed.

Pat the dough about 3/4 inch thick in two pans which can be used to steam/pressure cook.

Steam/Pressure cook for about 15 minutes.

Allow it to cool. Upon cooling, slice into bite size pieces.

Prepare the seasoning in a heated pan. And saute these sliced pieces until they are light golden in color.

Serve as a side to Dal and Rice. We loved it even as an appetizer/snack.
