A friend suggests we go to the new Maharashtra Sadan to have a meal and I said of course, given that Maharshtrian food is my number one favourite. When we reach Maharashtra Sadan, it looks like a cross between a posh hotel and a freshly constructed museum. One word that suggests itself is “opulent”.

The menu was a pocket book edition of what I had heard of this place. From among the options only two dishes were worth ordering.

The Maharashtrian Thali (Rs 100) with pithla (a besan based dish), bhakri (Jowar roti), thecha (a hot hot chutney made from green chillies) and other assorted chutneys is amazing.

The star of the evening is the explosively hot Kolhapuri mutton masala (Rs 300). I adore hot and spicy food. This was the kind of food that would make hair grow on your chest. Red hot spicy, this dish was not for the weak hearted!

It took a lot of Taak (buttermilk; Rs 10) to douse the fire in the belly. It was a meal that I undoubtedly enjoyed immensely!
