However, the aforementioned recipes are quite popular and ubiquitous in Maharashtra. This state has so much to offer apart from these signature dishes. One of them is the very amazing Kolambi Bhaat.
As the name suggests, ‘Kolambi’ means prawns, whereas ‘bhaat’ stands for rice. This recipe involves prawns and rice along with a variety of spices. Much like prawn pulao, the masala base here is made with powdered spices and goda masala which is a blend of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaves, cassia and coconut all roasted until nutty and light brown.
