Sheetal Kamat

When I was small mom use to cook this on all fasting days and I use to be waiting for such days as I just loved this amazing taste of rice with groundnut curry. Today when i heard from so many people that its shivraatri i couldn't resist fasting and eating this.

Samak Rice

Varyacha Bhaat
1 cup Samak (Varyacha tandul)
2 cup Water
1/2 spoon Jeera
2 spoon Ghee
Salt to taste

  • Heat ghee in a pan
  • Add jeera and let it sputter
  • Add samak in it and fry till its pinkish
  • Mix water, salt and cook on medium flame

You can add little ground nut powder as well while frying the rice. That will give nice taste and then no need to prepare groundnut curry. But i like groundnut curry so i didn't add it :)

Groundnut Curry

Shengadanaa Aamati
1 cup Groundnut
3 cup Water
2 spoon Jaggery
3-4 Green Chillies
3-4 Kokam
1/2 spoon Jeera
Salt to taste
1 spoon Ghee


  • Roast the groundnuts and remove the cover
  • Grind the groundnuts by mixing water
  • In a pan heat this grinded mixture
  • Add jaggery, crushed green chillies, kokam and salt to it and boil
  • In another pan heat the ghee, add jeera to it and let it sputter
  • Mix this heated ghee and jeera with the boiling curry

One must grind the groundnuts to very fine paste otherwise water won't mix well with the curry and curry will have the groudnut paste at bottom and watery curry on top which doesn't taste nice at all
