OPOS recipes

This Bajra Upma is a very tasty & healthy breakfast item, Monsoon is here in western ghats. Along with it comes the chill. It has been customary to stock up Bajra during cooler seasons to cook few items to give the body much needed energy boost. Whole lot of other dishes can be made with millet flours other than plain Rotis. Mixed with the right proportion of some starchy flours like Tapioca or Arrowroot, gluten free flour mix can be made for baking cookies and cakes. Steamed millet flour makes delicious Puttu. Cooked millet flours make tasty Idiyappams. One such item is this Bajra Upma.

Masale Bhat is a popular dish in marathi cuisine. Served invariably in Maharashtrian weddings, it is traditionally cooked with vegetables like Ivygourd (Tendli) and Brinjal, mixed with typical Maharashtrian spices like goda masala, and Kopra. But down the line it has changed its avatar with the use of vegetables like Carrot, Peas, Cauliflower, etc. You are free to use them. What differentiates itself from normal Pulav is the use of Goda masala which gives it a distinguished flavour. Another uniqueness of this dish is that it needs no onion & garlic as in pulav. Served with simple raita or even just plain curd and some pickle, it tastes heavenly and is a great recipe for Lunch box. Goda Masala is easily available in the market. If you don’t have access, pl refer to my recipe to make it at home. Here I have replaced rice with kodo millet. And used OPOS technique to prepare this. This masale bhat is simple, easy, time-saving and flavourful. Pl try and let me know. Masale bhat
