Metkut

Metkut is a typical Maharashtrian recipe. This is a fine powder made from rice, dal and other spices. It tastes very nice with ghee and rice (Tup-Metkut-Bhat). It's very healthy and easy to digest. My niece 'Aadyaa' loves this Metkut with soft over cooked rice(Gurgutya bhat in Marathi) and ghee. She can just eat this at any time of the day. We generally eat this whenever we feel sick and upset stomach. My mother makes best Chivda with metkut and chatni pudi. I'll definitely post the recipe of Chivda. But for now Aadyaa's favorite "Metkut"








Ingredients
Chana dal (harbara dal) - 1 cup
Urad dal - 1 cup
Rice - 1/2 cup
Whole wheat (Genhu) - 3 tablespoon
Cumin seeds - 1 tablespoon
Asafetida - 1 teaspoon (I used LG Hing)
Turmeric Powder - 1 teaspoon
Red chilli powder - 2 teaspoons
Coriander seeds - 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Fenugreek Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Dry ginger powder - 1 teaspoon



Procedure
Roast chana dal, urad dal, rice, genhu, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, fenugreek seeds separately one by one till it slightly gets brown. Cool it. Mix all the given ingredients and make a fine powder of it. It gives a nice aroma. Sieve and store it in a airtight container. You can use this for several months. Just have it with hot rice, ghee and salt as per taste. And lemon pickle along with it…. A superb combination.

Nice receipt. But one question what if I don't add wheat since my hubby can eat only gluten free food. Any alternative for wheat?

Khaugiri said...

Hi,
You can certainly omit wheat from it.

Tharusha said...

Thank you so much for sharing metkut recipe !! I so wanted to make it at home! I just twisted it a bit by using dalicha Peeth n gavhacha peeth as I did not have the whole grains but it turned out just fine! Lovely blog!

Khaugiri said...

I have never tried it without wheat but you can certainly try excluding it. Please let me know how it turns :-)
