Ratale Poli - A to Z Maharashtrian Sweets
We are on the 18th alphabet, R and I had a choice of making dishes like Ratalyacha Sheera (Sweet Potato Halwa), Ravyachi Kheer (Rawa Kheer), Rava Besan Vadi, and Ratale Poli. I could've gone ahead with Ratalyacha Sheera, however, I wanted to make another halwa, I wanted to skip this. I also had too many kheers. In fact, Kheers are no while halwas are ok at home.
Rava Besan Vadi is already on the blog. So the final option was this Ratale poli. Ratale is Sweet Potato and this refers to the Sweet Potato Roti. When it is used as an adjective it becomes Ratalyacha. I had a straightforward recipe to follow and quite so simple. I basically opted for this reason. I was so tired to stand on attention slogging over a halwa.
The heat is getting to all and especially when one is forced to be in the kitchen during weekends, it becomes unbearable. So as I went towards the final recipes, I ended up picking up simple ones.
I love sweet potato and the way I eat is just boil and eat as such. As a kid, I remember mixing it with sugar and enjoying it. I was the only one who ever ate like that. The rest all would eat as such. In fact, I don't' remember anybody at home even touching it. So whenever Amma gets it, it's only for me. These days I refrain from sugar and realized even the plain boiled ones taste so good. These make a great evening snack and for the goodness, this is promoted off late, it's good to include in your diet.
This Maharashtrian recipe is also called Ratale Roti, Sweet Potato roti.
I am not sure what these rotis are served along with, I couldn't gather that detail. However, this tastes great as such as its sweet. You can increase your sweetness by increasing the jaggery. Remember as you add in wheat flour the sweetness will decrease, so adjust accordingly.
