Food Guide | Maharashtra On My Plate

From the coast to the mountains, this western Indian state is a treasure trove of culinary delights. Spicy, sweet, and sour: there’s something for everyone here.

Being a native of Mumbai, I’ve enjoyed my fair share of vada pav, missal pav, kanda bhajji, pohe, and kothimbir vadi through the years. Naturally, I thought I had a reasonable idea of Maharashtrian delicacies, but, boy, was I wrong! On a journey through the coastal and mountainous regions of the state, I was regaled with both famous and lesser-known treats, traditionally designed to pique the palate with a wide variety of flavours. This is my attempt at recounting those culinary adventures for when you decide to make the journey into the hinterland of Maharashtra.
