Of late I have taken to watching Marathi serials. And one them is “agao bai sasubai” which talks of lot of old recipes.
In traditional udupi cuisine we have kumbhalakai athrasa. I saw the Maharashtrian variation of it called the Gharge. It is very simple to make, can be stored for about a week it makes it an excellent food to carry while travelling.
2 cups diced pumpkin or 1 cup pumpkin puree
½ cup jaggery.
1/8 sp. Nutmeg powder
2 cups wheat flour.
1 tbsp. Sooji.
½ tsp. Sauf.
Oil for deep frying.
Steam the pumpkin or microwave for 2mnts.
Mix all the ingredients to a stiff dough roll into small puri’s and deep fry.
Serve hot. Or store after it cools.
