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…

Vade by Tarla Dalal
Vade are traditional Maharashtrian version of the deep fried puris. The authentic recipe calls for a lot of pre-preparation in terms of making the flour for the vadas at home. I have used the readymade rice flour for a quick and delicious version.

Strikingly different from the traditional way of preparing the popular Maharashtrian snack, this Moong Dahi Misal combines the sprouts with whisked curds, along with chopped veggies, spice powders and of course, tongue-tickling khajur imli ki chutney. When you have sprouts on hand, it takes less tha ....

Cashew Curry by Tarla Dalal
It may sound odd and rather lavish to use cashews as a main ingredient in gravies, but because of the abundance of cashews in the region, cashew curry is a popular and common recipe in each malvani household!

Sweet Potato Puranpoli by Tarla Dalal
A healthy version of the traditional calorie laden puranpolis. Sweet potatoes have been used instead of dal to minimize the sugar used. Cardamom powder, nutmeg and saffron add to the pleasing aroma of these low-fat puranpolis. Enjoy them with low fat milk instead of ghee for a sweet ending!

Baitha Varan by Tarla Dalal
The green paste gives this otherwise simple dish a complete makeover! It increases the vitamin A content, while the vegetables add fibre.

Sprouts Misal by Tarla Dalal
A recipe put together in minutes if sprouts are handy. . . . . . I have chosen this recipe as sprouting increases the calcium content of pulses and also aid digestion. Serve it with whole wheat bread or rice.

Shahi Poli by Tarla Dalal
Though cooked using very little ghee it tastes as scrumptious as the traditional puranpoli. I have added low fat mava to give it a shahi touch.
