Karanji RecipeKaranji Recipe

Karanji is a traditional Maharashtrian sweet dish, it is popularly prepared during Diwali. Plain flour shells loaded with a sweet and succulent filling of coconut, semolina, spices and nuts are deep-fried and enjoyed during the festive occasion. Several regional cuisines in India feature dishes similar to Karanji and are known as Gujiya, Ghughra, Purukiya, Kajjikaya, and are made using different stuffings. Puran Poli is one delicacy that tops the list of foods made during all festive occasions in Maharashtrian households.  

Til LadduTil Laddu

This Til Laddu  also requires very little ghee, just to boost the aroma, because the crushed peanuts and jaggery provide enough stickiness to hold the laddu together. This traditional Maharashtrian sweet is served during festivals like Sankrant. People exchange Til Laddu and say, "Tilghud ghya godd godd bola" that means to forget the past ill-feelings and speak sweetly.

Rava Sheera is another delicacy generally eaten as breakfast or made for prasadam during Satyanarayan puja. This traditional preparation requires no advance preparation and can be whipped up even at short notice.
