Today is Vat Purnima……. and yes I am fasting.   Vat Purnima fasting is observed by married women for the well being of their husbands. The main ritual on the day includes tying of the red or yellow thread around the banyan tree and fasting from sunrise to sunset.   For me, I break my fast the next day so as most of you must be knowing empty stomach can lead to sleepless nights with nightmares often related to food.  Yup I get those…….   Actually I wanted to break away from the regular sabudana khichdi and potato kachori.   So here is something I tried with a humble Suran (Ya I think it is seriously under rated).



  1. Roast the Peanuts , remove the chilka and grind them coarsely. Cut the chillies finely. Cut and clean the suran. You have to be a little careful here as suran can sometimes cause itching. So just apply some oil on your hands before handling the suran
  2. In a bowl take the suran and the potatoes and mash them. Add the juice of one lemon(Please don’t skip this. It is to remove the residual itchiness), salt, jeera, 3 tsp of crushed groundnut, Sabudana(just ¼ cup if adding) and the arrowroot (this is in
  3. Heat ghee in a tawa and fry the patties till golden brown on a low flame. Instead of using arrowroot you can also use the Upwas Bhajani that you get in the stores.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
