Kelyacha Shikaran in the vati with poli, Sandage Gavar bhaaji, Thikhat khichadi
1 cup milk
1 large banana
1 pod cardamom
2 teaspoons sugar
In a cup of milk dissolve sugar. Mash half the banana and slice half of it. Mix with milk. Use the cardamom seeds crushed to enhance the flavor of Shikaran.
As a child this was my favorite and I could eat 3 polis with it in a go yet at all other times milk was a no no for me. Shikaran and poli / chapati is the best combination and spells comfort food for most Maharashtrian kids. Kelyacha Shikaran is to Mahrashtrian kid what curd rice is to a South Indian.
This was in my draft when FBD led me to The Cooker. So there will have to be more Marathi dishes for RCI from my blog.
