Maharashtrian cuisine is one which can tickle and surprise your taste buds. The food ranges from mild to really spicy food as well as flattering deserts that you will love to indulge in. Vada Pav (Potato filled cutlets with Buns), Misal (A spicy gravy of pulses garnished with onions), Onion fries, etc. are the everyday food of the people here and are items with which the state cuisine is identified.
The staple diet of Maharashtra includes rice, Dal, chapattis and a vegetable dish generally accompanied by pickle for taste. An eclectic and vibrant mix of cultures derived from the people with diverse backgrounds who move here, gives the cuisine here countless varieties, with absolutely nothing that you cannot find here. Each of these varied and colourful elements and cuisine styles finds themselves a unique place in the state's menu. Typically, a South-Indian breakfast will lead to a Maharashtrian lunch, a Gujarati snack and end with a Punjabi Dinner. Add a Bengali sweet if you want. This is how Maharashtra borrows food cultures from all over and makes them its own.
