Farali Chivda – A to Z Maharashtrian Sweets
Farali Chivda is one of the few dishes that I have tasted from the actual source and loved it. It’s also one of the dishes that prompted me to pick up this theme. Because I knew I get to taste this again and enjoy it.
Pradnya had given us a pack of this in her goodie bag when we had met last year. It was the most unexpected taste and one that gets quite addictive within minutes. For a typical south Indian, this may not appeal at the first taste, because of the sweetness, however, this grows on you within minutes because of the components it has.
When it came to picking up F, I had no trouble as I remembered this snack and Pradnya confirmed that can be done. she shared how she makes, while I had a look around over the other recipes and found that this is done differently by each. Meaning the other spice powders that get added are different as well.
I kept to the basic one and enjoyed it so much. Trust me, this gets completed in one sitting. What Pradnya gave us was white in colour and as you can see mine is bright red. Naturally, I had gone overboard on the red chili powder, still, it turned out a great combo with the sugar, raisins, and the chili powder.
As I said yesterday, these Farali Chivdas are consumed during the fasting time, so it also called Upwas Chivda / Batatyacha Farali Chivda.
