Summing up month long Maharashtrian Cooking!


A month long cooking series for RCI Maharashtrian Cuisine ends today.. My hubby didnt complain about having Maharshtrian food every day for past one month.. He actually loved it and was blessing Nupur every other day! :) When Nupur announced this event, no one would have been as glad as I was.. Starting from 25th May till today, 25th June, I posted 26 well known Maharshtrian recipes, trying to differenciate in various categories and atleast one entry for each category (obviously only vegetarian dishes). I surely cant take a "break" from Maharashtrian food as there are many more recipes to share, but for some time I'll be concentrating on posting dishes from some different cuisines as well..

Your blog is going to be such a fantastic resource for delicious Marathi recipes. I love the way you have indicated the easy and difficult ones, so cooks can choose something to try based on their level of experience. Kudos, Aarti!
