Masale Bhaat with Koshimbir is a traditional Maharashtrian style rice made with several spices. Bhaat is the Marathi word for cooked rice.

This is another recipe from the Sattvic Maharashtrian Thali segment. The mouthwatering aroma from the spices used along with the calming, slightly sweet, milky and tangy taste from the koshimbir makes it a heavenly combination.

With masale bhaat, I am introducing a new masala in my blog. And that masala is ‘Goda Masala’. This masala is unique to Maharashtrian cuisine. And it is a milder than the traditional garam masala and kolhapuri masala that I have used so far. Masale bhaat tastes best when made with goda masala.

About Masale Bhaat

Masale bhaat has many variations. You can make it using ivy gourd or eggplant or potato or mixed vegetables or just plain masale bhaat. This gives the dish its various other names as well like Tondli (ivy gourd) bhaat, vangi (eggplant) bhaat etc.

Below I have shared a process to make rice not too sticky. Follow the process to the letter and you will have a beautiful restaurant style dish.

About Koshimbir

Koshimbir is a Maharashtrian style raita. It has many variations as well. You can make koshimbir from cucumber, carrot, radish, cabbage, onion and many more. Generally, cucumber koshimbir is more common in Maharashtrian thali and is one of the most healthy recipes. The curd in the koshimbir has a cooling effect on body. It cools the heat generated from consuming spicy food like the masale bhaat. And cucumber provides fiber which helps in digestion.

This koshimbir or raita as you may call it is also a great accompaniment to have with biryani. There are days when I feel tired of just any kind of cooked food. During those days, I prepare just cucumber koshimbir and enjoy it with chapati / roti.

So, try out this combination and let me know if this was your tummy to heart moment…
