Marathi Dishes…Must Try At Least Once!!



Marathi dishes are delicious and ever so flavourful. They are spicy and quite hot, but you can’t stop at one bite.

The dishes have a touch of the coastal side and the Western Ghats. The aroma of the spices and the abundant use of ginger and garlic give the food a unique flavour. Lentils play a dominant role and are often eaten with roti and rice.

Have a look at these dishes…
