Farali Pattice with Seafood Sauce

Farali Pattice with Seafood Sauce

Although Farali Pattice is eaten during Navratras, during the non-festive time, it can be presented in a non-vegetarian way as well, dressed in a completely new avatar. So this recipe (minus the seafood sauce) is a perfect Navratri recipe. Farali Pattice is a fasting recipe, which people in Mumbai relish happily during the festive days. So if you are looking for a vrat recipe on this festive season, this traditional Gujarati recipe is something you should try. Even if you are not fasting during Navratras and if you can eat non-vegetarian food during this time, this fusion twist is going to be great! The base is the same old Farali Pattice, while it is topped with a cheese-based butter sauce, infused with seafood aroma. So the recipe is twofold, and serves all. Again, if you are looking for vrat ka khana, simply omit the seafood sauce!

In Mumbai too, Farali Pattice is very popular. During the Navratras, many sweet shops sell these patties. In many traditional homes, these are made in bulk for the festive season. The unusual texture of Farali pattice (crisp from outside and textured from inside) is just perfect for those who don’t like to eat sweets during the festivities. But although it has chillies in the filling, the sweetness coming from the freshly grated coconut is just something that reminds one of childhood festive days. We personally love the texture of the grated-coconut filling, contrasting sharply with the smooth outer cover made with potatoes. To add to the flavour and texture, people also add roasted peanuts, spices, dry fruits and green chillies. This is a deep-fried snack which Mumbaikars love to eat anytime of the year! In this recipe, we used water chestnut flour as a binder. If not available, use arrowroot.
