Policha Kuskara

Policha Kuskra can be translated as chapati crumbles. There are at least two recipes in the Maharashtrian kitchens using chapati crumbles. One is FodNichi poLi and the other is poLicha Laadoo. Today's recipe is more like a way of eating than actual recipe. It got introduced in my family due to my grandparents' brief stay in Nagpur.

It's a simple meal of chapatis - Just make your own crumbles in a plate. Make a well in the middle, pour a ladleful of Nagpuri amti, drizzle little foDNiche tel on top and eat with raw, red onion slices on side.

It may need some acquired taste, but whenever Nagpuri Amti is made at our home, we definitely make it a point to slurp this rustic poLicha kuskara
