Who doesn’t like a warm meal in the winter. And Masale Bhaat will be your perfect weeknight dinner option because it has the carbs in form of rice and goodness of a lot of vegetables and yes can be eaten with a raita or just regular plain yoghurt as well.

What makes Masale Bhaat different from a Tehri (Spice Rice from North India) is the use of Goda Masala (a special type of spice mix from Maharashtra). In the recipe I have used 4 – 5 vegetables but you are free to remove and add more vegetables as well. Remember this wouldn’t be the most separate strands of rice kind of dish like a pulao but more comfort, warm and cosy rice option. I love mine with plain yoghurt and some cukes, carrots on the side. How about you?
