Maharashtrian Cuisine

 The Maharashtrian cuisine covers a range from mild to very spicy dishes. Wheat, rice, jowar, bajri, vegetables, lentils and fruit form staples of the Maharashtrian diet. Metropolitan cities like Mumbai and Pune tend to be cosmopolitan with Idli, Dosa and even Chinese dishes being common there. But distinctly Maharashtrian street foods such as Pav Bhaji, Misal Pav, Vada Pav, dishes such as Kothambir Vadi, Kanda Bhaji, Aluchi Bhaji and sweets such as Puran Poli, Modak, Karanji, Basundi and Shrikhand remain popular.
