What is "Mumbai Masala"?
In a country where dialects change every few miles, cuisines are no different. Maharashtra like any other state in India is a mini-India in itself.
Maharashtrian cuisine ranges from vegetarian and kosher meals to coastal and non-vegetarian varieties. This is a fertile land, with a lush green lining of Konkan along the west coast - home of presumably the most delicious mango variety in the world - the alphonso, all the way to the sweet oranges from Nagpur on the east..
While the cuisine boasts delicacies such as Shrikhand, Puran Poli and the exotic Modaks on one hand, on the other, it goes all out spicy on many of its curries like, Rassa and snack items like Misal Pav and Batata Vada. 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!
This site is our attempt to introduce Maharashtrian vegetarian food. It is best described in its recipes than with any number of words one may try to come up with.
