The Pathare Prabhu Anand Bazaar

u cuisine.After that we have enjoyed it many times,always in homes.Pathare Prabhus are a close knit community,modern in their thinking but upholding all their traditions.Besanache Taat,made on Pithori Amavasya is one such fascinating concept where gram flour is used to make miniatures

We met up with Bimba Nayak who was the organizer of the Pathare Prabhu Mahila Samaj.Women in this community have tremendous respect,something to be emulated.The Bazaar had them displaying home products like dry-cleaning solutions for home,homemade snacks,jewelry and clothes.

There were many food stalls.....Pathare Prabhu food,Malvani food and more

Started off with a Pudina drink that won my heart!

Bimba Nayak had Stuffed Crabs (Puranache Chimbori)

Garlic based Prawns Khadkhadle which was astounding!

But the star was the Ghada....a Prawn Undhiyo made with 20 vegetables.This is a winter speciality made with prawn,ghol or mutton

Khalsa,the root vegetable shown above is a main ingredient and resembles a wate…
