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 Maharashtrian Sabzis

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.
