Sabzis form an integral part of Indian cuisines. In a diverse country like India, with varied geographical conditions and the existence of many religions and culture, there is a lot to explore in terms of different cuisines too.

It is amazing to see how each of them exclusivity in their food habits. While the Gujaratis love their sabzis with a hint of sugar, the Maharashtrians love their sabzis to be zesty and spicy. If you go towards the North of India, you will find that green veggies and pulses form an integral part of their sabzis majorily in the form of curries and gravies. And the South Indians have a totally different style of cooking sabzis which predominantly has coconut as its main ingredient.

Let us explore these sabzis across different states of India.

Traditional Gujarati Sabzis

Gujaratis term sabzis as ‘shaak’. Potato features in most of the daily sabzis they cook. Kobi Batata nu Shaak and Tendli Batata nu Shaak unquestionably features on their weekly menu.

Traditional Maharashtrian Sabzis

We have the entire range of Maharashtrian vegetables often termed as ‘bhaji’ in the state of Maharashtra. These bhajis have a unique flavour and texture, due to the use of special ingredients like peanuts, sesame seeds, several spices and freshly-prepared masalas like Malvani Masala, Goda Masala etc.
