Kanavale means Steamed Chapathi are made just like simple chapathi, but they are not roasted on Tawa, but they are steamed like Idli’s or Ukadiche modak / Dhokla.
Traditionally, on this day we are not supposed to use knife, scissor or pan like tawa, because they say Snacks are scared of knife, scissor and instruments like this.
