Pithala (Maharashtrian delight)

Pithla is rich in proteins and with bhakri or chapati it makes a complete food. Gram flour (besan) has lots of nutritional benefits - it is rich in proteins but it also contains amylase – a slowly digested starch that helps you to feel full longer. With pitla, serve lots of salads like cucumber, tomatoes, radish, onion to increase the nutritional value of meal. Homemade pitla calories are less as compared to the restaurant one, so you can enjoy it without worry. You can also add green vegetables like palak (spinach), methi, ghol bhaji (kulfa / pig-weed) or chival bhaji in pithla to make it healthier. Tomatoes can also be added to pitla.
