#TalkTheWalk 6: The ABC of Marathi Cuisine by Dr. Saee Koranne-Khandekar
If you think that Marathi cuisine is all coconut and chilli, think again. In our #TalkTheWalk, Saee Koranne-Khandekar, author of the award-winning 'Pangat, A Feast', does a show-and-tell of lesser-known ingredients from the region - Saandgi mirchi, Gavhle, the lesser-known Lahya (popped Jowar/rice/barnyard millet), Mirgund, Metkoot, Amboshi and more - and explains how they are used. Learn where and how these ingredients are procured and processed, and where to find them in your local markets. Join us to discover how Marathi cuisine is so much more beyond Vada Pao, and go home with a bite to eat!
