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.

And the South Indians have a totally different style of cooking sabzis which predominantly has coconut as its main ingredient.
