Upasachi Misal (उपासाची मिसळ) – Favorite Maharashtrian Snack for Fasting Days

उपासाची मिसळ मराठी

You would have relished Maharashtrian specialty – Misal – made from Pulses. There is one more type of Misal famous in Maharashtrians – Upasachi Misal. This misal can be eaten on a fasting day. But we all like it so much, that we have it even on a non-fasting day.

Upasachi Misal has 3 main things – Sabudana Khichadi, Shengdana Usal with Gravy and Upasachi Batata Bhaaji.

I’d posted the recipe of Sabudana Khichadi earlier. Use the same recipe to make Khichadi with 1 cup of Sabudana (Sago / Tapioca Pearls). But do not add Potato as we are making separate subji with potato.

Apart from using this Bhaaji in Upasachi Misal, you can also eat it with Roti / Rice / Vari rice (Samo / Bhagar). Curd rice with this Bhaaji is an awesome combination.

Shengdana Usal with Gravy (Peanuts Gravy)

Shengdana is peanuts. Since we are making Misal, we need some gravy. Hence this usal. This also requires very few ingredients.

Ingredients

Raw peanuts 1 cup

Crushed chillies ½ teaspoon

Roasted peanut powder 2 tablespoon

Roasted cumin powder ½ teaspoon

Scraped fresh coconut 2 teaspoons

Chopped coriander 1 teaspoon

Sugar ½ teaspoon

Mango Powder ½ teaspoon

Salt to taste

For Tadka / Tempering

Pure ghee (Clarified butter) ½ teaspoon

Cumin Seeds ½ teaspoon

Instructions

1. Soak raw peanuts in water for 8 hours

2. Pressure cook peanuts till they are soft. Note that peanuts take long to cook. After 1 whistle, continue to pressure cook on low flame for at least 20 minutes. If peanuts are still not soft, cook till soft. (photo attached)

3. Grind roasted peanut powder, 1 spoon scraped coconut, Crushed chillies, cumin powder, sugar, salt, Mango powder together in a coarse paste. Add water as required. If you have buttermilk, you can use 2 tablespoons of buttermilk instead of Mango Powder.

4. In a pan, heat ghee. Add cumin seeds. Wait for splutter. Now add the peanut paste. Add boiled peanuts. Add 1 spoon scraped coconut. Add water to make gravy.

5. Boil the ingredients together for 5 minutes.

6. Add chopped coriander. After a couple of minutes of boiling, Usal is ready.

Shengdana Usal

 

Apart from using this Usal in Upasachi Misal, you can also eat it with Roti / Rice / Vari rice (Samo / Bhagar). Vari rice(Samo / Bhagar) with Usal is a great combination.

Now for assembling Upasachi Misal:

In a plate, Add a table spoon of Sabudana Khichadi, ½ table spoon of Batata Bhaaji. Add a big serving spoonful of Shengdana Usal along with gravy. Add a tablespoon of Spicy Potato chivada / Spicy Potato Sali (fried grated potato). Sprinkle chopped coriander. Enjoy this delicious Upasachi Misal. It’s awesome.
