Maachher Puli Pithe (Makar Shankranti Special)

Hello my dear friends, wish you all a very happy Sankranthi. As you all have noticed, I had been out of blogging for the last few months since I was taking some time to get settled in my new career. But trust me, I was also missing the blogging world and you all very badly. So I thought what best can be to resume my blogging than a post on Sankranthi day. This year I felt myself quite fortunate to have my mother on Shankranthi. She has prepared almost all types of pithe and we enjoyed relishing those. Here I am sharing one of those which is my most favorite one.

This particular recipe (Maachher Puli Pithe) is one of my mother's innovation and she only inspired me to go with this excellent snacks. This is a regular pithe with fish as the stuffing. It tastes very good and I suggest you all fish lovers to try this out.
