The Maharashtrian equivalent of the mighty pancake, thalipeeth is a savoury dish made out of a special multi grain flour with different herbs and spices. Here’s a list of restaurants where you can get some of this authentic Maharashtrian fare across the city!

Shabree

Located in Parichay Hotel, this multicuisine restaurant has made a name for itself with its quick, yet polite service. With copper ghanghaalas filled with flowers, carts of spices, and traditional paintings adorning the wall, the ambience has a very distinctive Indian appeal to it. Always bustling with people, Shabree is a crowd favourite because of its clean and hygienic standards. You can try out their thalipeeth as a part of their Maharashtrian thali {INR 320}. The thali offers a wide variety of food including pakodas, shrikand, dahi wada, pithla and the iconic Wangi Masala and Zunka. What’s interesting is how they experiment with their thalipeeth; sabudana, moong, bhajani, kakadiche, a different type for different days! So head on to Shabree to experience some Maharashtrian love!

Mathura

Another gem offering traditional Maharashtrian food with interesting flavours, Mathura offers a great variety of dishes. The thalipeeth here is usually served with Mataki Usal, making for an extremely healthy and tasty breakfast. What’s great is that they experiment with ingredients for different flavours. The Thalipeeth batter is made with kala mirch instead of the regular chili powder for a different kind of spice kick! Additionally, they offer different types of thalipeeths such as bhajani thalipeeth, sabudana thalipeeth, and besan thalipeeth; all with slight variations in the batter. The service is comparatively slow, be prepared for a 10 minute wait even on weekdays. However, the courteous staff makes up for it.
