Pitla is a popular accompaniment that Maharashtrians never tire of having! Once you try it, you will want to have it too, as often as possible. Made with minimal and commonly available ingredients, the Besan Pitla is a quick and easy accompaniment that goes well with rice , rotis and puri . Here, besan dissolved in water, is cooked with onions, green chillies and an aromatic tempering. Just ensure you have the Maharashtrian Besan Pitla immediately on preparation because besan tends to thicken upon cooling.
