I feel very lucky , to experience the culinary delights from two different regions , Mumbai , my native, and Nashik , my Sasuraal…my In -Laws’ hometown. Just like my Mom ,my Mother In Law , too is a wonderful cook , and we both were happy to have a common hobby and passion towards cooking. I was amazed on discovering different varieties of curries, especially, typical Maratha style spicy ones (though I had a tough time adjusting to the spice initially). After 5 years of marriage, I must say , I have mastered most of the Maratha style recipes , thanks to my Mother In Law , who was patient enough throught the process . On festivals , especially religious ones special set of meals ,with specific recipes are made for each course. Gul Puri , a fried flat bread made with Jaggery, is specially made in the month of Ashad…that generally falls in early monsoon months of june or july. Gul puri is served with rice kheer and methi subji , and the meal is made as an offering for Devi or Goddess!! The combination of sweet puri and spice and savoury methi subji is just unbeatable. You have to try it to experience it.
