Manda pitha Recipe
The process of making Pithas is quite easy.You need to get the right technique to make the perfect dough. your job will be much easier once you get that.
You can try using different varieties of rice-flour .The amount of water used varies accordingly. I am sharing this Monda Pitha Recipe from My Mom’s kitchen .
Manda Pitha can be made with sweet filling or savory filling .The same pitha is known as Mohura Pitha in Assam which is must on Assamese festival Bihu.
Sweet rice dumplings can be paired with a spicy potato curry or Aloo dum .You can also pair with a spicy dip of your choice.
But I enjoy as it is . Even it tastes better the very next day .Give it a try.In winter you can make the Pitha in the night and keep it for the next day breakfast at room temperature.
Pitha can be taken at anytime of a day .Starting from breakfast to your dinner. You got my point I guess .Make them on your weekend to enjoy your good time !
