Maharashtrian Food Quiz: How Well Do You Know Maharashtrian Food?

2 mins. read

From the world-famous Pav Bhaji to the staple Vada Pav, the authentic Kothimbir Vadi to the very sweet Puran Poli, Maharashtrian cuisine has a lot to offer.

Konkan & Varadi - food of Maharashtra can be broadly classified into these two styles. Konkan region has influences from coastal regions like Goan, Saraswat, Gaud and Malvani. Due to this, rice and fish are the staples of this region with its speciality being the saltwater fishes dipped in a variety of sour-sweet gravies that pair beautifully with steamed rice. Varadi cuisine, on the other hand, belongs to the Vidarbha region. Moving inwards from Konkan, one reaches the region known as Desh that includes the main districts of Pune, Satara and Kolhapur. This region historically formed the centre of the Maratha empire and the spicy Kolhapuri cuisine of this region offers a peek into the eating habits of the royals.

Maharashtrian cuisine is considered to be very diverse as the flavours and spice levels differ in different parts of the state. Mumbai being the financial capital of the country, and with a great exposure has regional & international cuisines to offer. However, the traditional food of Maharashtra can be explored in its inner mainland.

If you associate Maharashtrian cuisine with a hot serving of Kanda Poha or spicy pav bhaji, then hold on and take this quiz. So the next time you book a Maharashtra travel package, you can make sure to plan a culinary trail across the region in your itinerary.
