Diwali Pharal and Maharashtrian Breakfast at its best !
It was a treat for those who love #Maharashtrian Food , especially Breakfast . #Hotel Shreyas hosted the Maharashtrian Breakfast Festival offering an unlimited buffet of an array of various Maharashtrian dishes. This included Kansacha Hurda, Dadpe Pohe, Misal, Matar Usal, Amboli, Pangi, Thalipith, Batata Wada, Kolache Pohe, Sheera, Kharvas. The buffet also included Diwali Faral such as Ladoo, Chirote, Chakali, Shev, and Chivda.
The #Maharashtrian Breakfast Festival seemed to be a page right out of the history book. One was greeted by hosts donning the traditional Maharashtrian looks. The menu represented authentic breakfast or snack items of Maharashtra and gave justice to each dish. Hotel Shreyas quite uniquely dished up Dadpe Pohe, wherein they also had the ingredients displayed aside the ready dish. Although Dadpe Pohe is well known it is slowly moving out of the menu in most of our households and is now seen mostly in Konkan. But this was a treat with a mix of pohe , coconut , onions , tomatoes, coriander , peanuts and tempered to a beautiful taste. There was a station for guests to enjoy fresh, soft and melt-in-the-mouth ambolis. Misal, Batata Wada, Thalipeeth and Kharwas were also the highlights of the Festival. The base of Misal what we call as rassa was sweet and sour , not very spicy to suit the taste of puneties mixed with freshly made farsaan . Sabudana Khicadi was delicious with potatoes , chilly and jeera . The Faral too was exquisite for one to enjoy the festivities of Diwali to its essence. People with a sweet tooth were in for a treat, with silky smooth Kharwas, crisp and light Chirote, Besan Ladoos and Sheera. Fruit juices , tea and coffee was an apt finish to this Royal Maharashtrian treat. A well organized festival with spic and span food areas ensured a seamless treat of traditional and festive foods.
