Maharashtrian cuisine is a zesty and spicy one, which makes abundant use of aromatic and flavourful ingredients like peanuts, sesame seeds and chillies. There are several traditional snacks like Poha and dishes like Usal, which Maharashtrians enjoy having frequently. Zunka is one of the most famous dishes, where the zunka is made using besan flour and had with hot bhakri. They also love rice, and feel dissatisfied if they do not have at least a little rice with the meal.

Apart from plain steamed rice, which is enjoyed with spicy accompaniments like Methi Pitla or Amti, rice is also enjoyed in the form of lip-smacking dishes like Dodkyacha Bhaat , Masala Bhaat, Tendli Bhaat, etc. The snack-lovers look forward to the monsoon, to enjoy hot Bhajias and Vada Pav made even more delightful with the addition of green chillies and Dry Garlic Chutney. Enjoy sweets like Modak and Puran Poli . Enter, to fall in love with Maharashtrian cuisine…
