A real spicy preparation of rice and tendi, which totally masks the sober nature of tendli transforming it into an exciting ingredient that will be loved by all.


This Tendli Bhaat actually has a double dose of spices! Not only is the rice cooked with sautéed spices, but it is also seasoned with an aromatic spice powder. The spice powder is quite special, because the regular spices like cinnamon and cloves are further enhanced by unique additions like sesame, caraway and coconut.


Adding half the spice powder when cooking the rice and tendli, and adding the remaining at the end, improves the aroma and flavour of the dish wonderfully. You could try the same recipe with other veggies, but tendli offers a special, crisp texture that is difficult to match!


Enjoy this Maharashtrian delicacy with curds and your favourite Aachar by the side.

Tendli bhaat.. A spicy variation of rice.. A different preparation, which is a treat to oneself.. the coconut mixture added to the rice.. gives a nice aroma.. and does take much time to prepare.. loved it..
