Every Ashtami (or Navami), we spring up from our bed in the excitement of enjoying the customary halwa poori chane platter prepared for bhog. The fact that it is made only twice in a year makes this meal even more tempting. The simple yet delicious kale chane, paired with sweet halwa and fried poori seems like a combination made in heaven. Breakfast in almost every Indian household is this delicious meal, and many of us have it again for lunch, but a third serving looks like a bit too much. Often, we are left with chane that we are not able to finish even after overloading on them. Out heart breaks seeing our beloved chane go to waste, but not anymore.
Here we have listed down some great recipe ideas that will utilise the leftover chane to serve you another exciting meal. You can have these for evening snacks, dinner or even for breakfast next morning. To add onions and garlic or to skip it is completely your choice. Remember the cooked chane are already seasoned, so adjust the amount of extra seasoning accordingly.
