When I received the mega-hamper of Glassware, I was eager to use it. Finally one day I decided to use it for the dinner.
While cooking, my brother called me on my phone and told me that he will come late at night at the time of dinner. So after cooking I made Strawberry Sharbat for him and started arranging the dishes on table for dinner. The menu was that of a simple, regular Maharastrian meal.
The Plain Dal (Sadha varan) made without any tadaka, having flavour of turmeric and asafoetida was filled in casserole and garnished with coconut shreads and coriander.
The aromatic plain rice (Bhaat) was kept in bowl, embellished with pieces of tomato, carrot and coriander.
And the favourite of all, yummy Alu Sabzi (Batatyachi Bhaji) was ready in the dish with coconut shreads and coriander spread on it.
The Rotis (Ghadichi Poli) which are slightly thick compared to phulaka, were lightly brushed with drops of oil and arranged in the dish in folded manner.
In addition to that Amba pak (modified version of Sakhar amba made using raw mangoes) was filled in bowl.
The other bowl was filled with ready-made Bakarvadis and kept on table as my brother likes to eat something light as refreshment before dinner.
And finally the glasses were filled with strawberry sharbat garnished with mint leaves, ready for drinking and came my brother.
Thus all menu was ready on the table and we all took our dinner together. It was one of the rare days when all our family sits and dine together.
