We're sure even the Maharastrians didn't think it was anything beyond chaat and
pav bhaji, but the Taj apparently knows better. After its Balti
food festival last month, the Taj Banjara is getting closer home and is hosting
a Maharashtrian food festival. Maharashtrian food has a special place in the Indian
culinary spread. The popularity of this cuisine spread during the reign of the
Maratha and Peshwa kings to different parts of India. In Maharashtra, the food
is prepared in different styles in different areas - from the Konkan coast to
Nasik, from Pune to Nagpur and from Kolhapur to Akola, each region imparts a different
flavor using its own specific ingredients as per its age-old traditions.
Various delicacies like Sol Kadi, Theecha, Bharle Dodki, Kolhapuri chicken and
Sauji Mutton, and the typical Maharastrian desserts Pooran Poli, Shrikhand and
more can be tried here. Chef Prabhu from the Taj Residency Nasik has been specially
flown in for this food festival. Please contact 666-9999 for further details.
