Gujarati Faral, Faraal recipes
Last Updated : Jul 18,2017
Faraal food is basically food that is permissible on fasting days. These foods are usually energy-dense, made with ingredients like potatoes, peanuts, sago and flours, and without using some ingredients like salt and cereals. This section covers traditional faraali foods as well as some innovative recipes made by replacing certain ingredients and cooking methods in regular recipes. Keep up your stamina on fasting days with traditional dishes like Sabudana Vada, Sabudana Khichadi, Batata Chi Bhaji and Thandai , as well as innovative treats like Kand Aloo Pakoda, Shakarkand Ka Halwa and Farali Dosa
Crispy and flavourful pakodas made of yam, potatoes and crushed peanuts, the Kand Aloo Pakoda is good company for a cup of hot masala chai on a cold winter’s day.
The combination of sama and rajgira flour gives rise to a sumptuous Farali Dosa that is sure to please your palate on a fasting day. Sour buttermilk is added to the batter to help in fermenting. The fermentation time is just two hours, so you do not even have to plan for this dosa the previous day itself.
