Kolhapur may be known for the great Maratha warrior Shivaji Maharaj, but it is way more than that! This place is overflowing with spicy delectables bursting with flavours that will make you want to try them all. You got to taste the real Kolhapuri food as this place is truly a haven for foodies.
p.s. Keep a bottle of water handy before you attempt their fiery cuisine.
Just like these spicy dishes, go catch this amazing duo Vishal-Shekhar, as they perform their fiery tracks on November 16th during the McDowell’s No.1 Soda #No1YaariJam Live.
1. Desi Girl – Dostana
Kolhapuri Food pairing: Mutton Kheema
Want to try authentic Kolhapuri food? Mutton Kheema tops the list. A traditional spicy blast in the mouth, this dish is every bit desi. Just like our spicy desi girl -Priyanka Chopra in Dostana. Her latkas-jhatkas are synonymous to the zesty taste of the dish. We couldn’t think of any other dish that would complement this Vishal-Shekhar song.
2. The Disco Song – Student Of The Year
Kolhapuri Food pairing: Mutton Tambada Rassa
Every Maharashtrian’s go-to gravy is the Tambada Rassa. It is a mutton soup that is hot and spicy, red in colour just like our fiery hot Alia Bhatt in Student Of The Year. Served along with the main course, this dish is a must-have at any Maharashtrian affair.
3. Sheila Ki Jawani - Tees Maar Khan
Kolhapuri Food pairing: Kolhapuri bhel
This munch-on starter will tantalise your taste buds just like our tease Katrina Kaif in the song Sheila ki Jaawani. Mostly served at roadside eateries, this mouth-watering bhel is made from puffed rice & farsan & is a great evening time snack.
4. Malhari - Bajirao Mastani
Kolhapuri Food pairing: Misal Pav
The song ‘Malhari’ is apt for our choice of Kolhapuri dishes. You ask us why? While ‘Malhari’ captures the victorious spirit, ‘Misal pav’ is the ultimate win-win be it at breakfast or even lunch. This fiery mixture of boiled potatoes, farsan, sev and a spicy soup like gravy, the pungent flavours and aroma brings about the perfect zest like our Bajirao, Ranveer Singh does in this track.
5. Chammak Challo - Ra One
Kolhapuri Food pairing: Mutton Lonche (Pickle)
There may be many appetisers on your plate, but no meal is complete without the classic Mutton Lonche or pickle. Taste the twang while eating it just like our thrilling Kareena Kapoor in the song- ‘Chammak Challo’. You can’t say no to Mutton Lonche, now can you?
