Gudi Padwa is considered to be a very auspicious festival in Indian culture. It marks the beginning of the new year and fresh harvest according to the Hindu calendar. Although this festival is celebrated across the country in various forms, Gudi Padwa holds special significance in the state of Maharashtra. On this day, people buy new things or start new ventures as this day is considered to bring good luck. Having said that, any Indian festival is incomplete without delicious food.
Gudi Padwa is known for the variety of delicacies that are prepared in Indian households on this auspicious occasion. With this festival right around the corner, here is a list of four recipes that you can prepare to add more happiness to your Gudi Padwa celebrations this year.
- Puran Poli
Made using a surreal blend of jaggery and boiled smashed lentils, this sweet flat bread is one of the most common recipes in Maharashtra on Gudi Padwa. “Puran” is the lentil mixture that is mixed with the dough prepared from wheat flour to make a flat bread or “poli”. Sumeet 4mm Thick Traditional Supreme Tawa is a kitchen accessory that can help you prepare a delicious puran poli. This tawa comes with a 4-layer nonstick coating that doesn’t let the puran poli stick to the tawa. Moreover, the tawa also comes with Bakelite handles for a comfortable grip and easy control.
- Sabudana Wada
Sabudana Wada is a crispy snack that is usually prepared as a side dish during Gudi Padwa. This snack is made from white tapioca pearls or sago, and gets a filling of mashed potatoes, chillies and cumin seeds. Sabudana wada is usually made using the deep frying method and Sumeet 3mm Hard-Anodised Deep Kadhai is something that can prove to be helpful for this task. This kadhai is suitable for everyday cooking and it distributes the heat evenly so your recipes turn out to be cooked to perfection and retain their flavor.
