TAANDALACHI UKAD (STEAMED SAVOURY RICE FLOUR DISH)

Taandalaachi Ukad is a simple, healthy and delicious breakfast dish from Maharashtra. This dish Taandulaachi Ukad is actually a mildly spiced rice flour porridge made using curds and hence is also called as Taakatli (using buttermilk). It is not only nutritious, but is quite filling too. Similarly ukad is made using other flours too, like Naachani (Raagi), Ghau (Whole Wheat Flour) which are called Ukadpendi.

Rice is used on a large scale in the coastal areas and forms the staple diet of that region. One such region is the Konkan area in Maharashtra. In this region itself you can find different recipes for this same ukad, though the basic ingredients like rice flour and buttermilk remain the same.

  • 1/4 cup Corriander Leaves
