Are you bored of eating simple roti or parantha daily? Then why not try Maharashtra’s all-time popular amboli (amboli is also a hill station’s name in the state). The thick, soft and fluffy preparation, which looks like a pancake, is made of rice, pulses and herbs and is a great option for breakfast or brunch. Easy to prepare, it can be enjoyed with coconut chutney. And masala tea is a bonus.

Rekha Diwekar, who often experiments with traditional recipes, recently shared the recipe.
