We all love pithale-Bhakari at home.We generally make twice in a week in evening. At home, everybody is so comfortable with this menu. My uncle takes extra oil on pithale, this is a special way to eat in villages.
It is mostly prepared in villages for dinner. My grandmother used to tell us, after a tiresome day of working on the farm when they come back and have hot pithale with hot Bhakari, the tiredness will just go by eating this food. Such a special attachment of farmers is there with this special Maharashtrian Pithale Recipe.
