Food culture
Maharashtrians are by and large, meat eaters. The cuisine includes subtly flavoured vegetarian delicacies and hot, aromatic meat and fish curries.Kokum, most commonly used in an appetizer-digestive called the sol kadhi, is served chilled. All non-vegetarian and vegetarian dishes are eaten with boiled rice or with bhakris, which are soft rotis made of rice flour. Special rice puris called vada and amboli, which is a pancake made of fermented rice, urad dal, and semolina, are also eaten as a part of the main meal. Some of the famous dishes include: Kothimbir Vadi, Batatawada,
Pau Bhaji, Besan Ka Pithla, Bharleli Vangi, Pandhra Rassa,
Kolhapuri Ghost Ka Rassa,Papletchi Amti, Konkani Machchi Kadi etc

The city of Pune first gained its importance as the capital of the Marathas in the 17th century.Today Pune is one of the leading metros in India, with the Film and Television Institute of India and National Defence Academy based here.t is also an important commercial and educational centre with distinctive features and characteristics of its own. >>TOP
Aurangabad is located 630m above sea level and is also the district headquarters of Aurangabad district.It's easy to see why many travellers regard Aurangabad as little more than a convenient place to kill time on the way to Ellora and Ajanta caves. First impressions seem to confirm its reputation as an industrial metropolis yet, given a little effort, this northern Maharashtrian city can yield compensations for its architectural shortcomings. >>TOP
