Maharashtra is rich in its culture, history, language as well as food. Authentic Maharashtrian cuisine is sure to touch your heart with its aromatic delicacies. The traditional preparations are generally spicy but healthy considering they use ample of pulses, sprouts and whole grains in their preparations. 80% Maharashtrians are Hindus and are great devotees of Lord Ganesha. They believe in fasting to please the almighty and many of their preparations are idle for consuming while they fast. Well they are so delicious that one would happily fast for them.
We happened to visit this little Maharashtrian joint in the lanes of Thakur Complex at Kandivali named Jivhala! They serve some home style Maharashtrian delicacies and here go our recommends.

Maharashtrian food is very close to our heart as we have lived our childhood in this state which is so rich with some really lovely Maharashtrian friends. We are happy we found a joint where we can go to satiate our palette with simple Maharashtrian food. We opt to eat here while we skip making food at home while craving for homemade preps.
They are a small joint and make their preparations fresh and hence take a little time to serve you. The recipes are crafted by the owner’s mother, that makes them even more scrumptious. We wish them all the luck with the great job they doing of serving delicious home-style food to people.
