Maharashtrian or Marathi cooking uses a large variety of vegetables, fish and coconut. Maharashatrian cuisine is rich in ginger, garlic and a variety of spices. Tomatoes, eggplants and other vegetables stuffed with filling and sautéed in oil till soft are very popular here. Maharastrian cooking uses peanut oil in sparing amounts and is considered healthy.
While the cuisine boasts delicacies such as Shrikhand (sweet yogurt dessert), Puran Poli (sweet flatbread) and the exotic Modaks (steamed rice flour dumplings) on one hand, on the other, it goes all out spicy on many of its curries like, Rassa and appetizers like Misal Pav (puffed rice salad)and Batata Vada (potato pattie in a bun). To top it all, its capital city – Mumbai – the most glamorous, vibrant and cosmopolitan city in India, adds to Maharashtrian cuisine, among other things, its very own uniquely characteristic ‘Chaat’ food typically served by street vendors.
