Visited New Maharashtra Sadan in New Delhi to have Authentic Maharashtra Cuisine

I was craving for authentic Maharashtrian food in New Delhi.

Bus no. 894 (air-conditioned) from New Delhi Railway Station (Paharganj side) to Baroda House bus stop (K.G Marg, Connaught Place) to reach New Maharashtra Sadan for dinner.

Bus fare from New Delhi Railway Station (Paharganj side) to Baroda House bus stop – Rs. 10/- only.

The state Bhawan canteens in Delhi serve the best authentic regional cuisines and New Maharashtra Sadan is one of them.

New Maharashtra Sadan – breathtaking and spectacular view at night. Almost like a royal palace in the heart of Delhi.

It was my first visit to New Maharashtra Sadan for dinner.

ID for verification to enter. Tight security check.

Almost like 4/5 star hotel – a thought as I enter. Centrally air-conditioned.

The canteen is on the ground floor.

Restaurant Timings:

Breakfast – 7 am – 11 am

Lunch – 12 Noon – 3 pm

Snacks – 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Dinner – 7 pm – 10 pm

The menu veg./non-veg. though having North-Indian cuisine but I looked at Marathi Cuisine which is as follows:

Aloo Wangi, Mataki Usal, Patodi Rassa, Sev Tamater Bhaji, Aloo Sukhi Bhaji, Pithla, Zhunka, Bharali Wangi, Jeera Aloo Mutter, Veg. Malwani, Mix Veg. Kolhapuri, Patal Bhaji, Saoji Aloo, Wangyacha Bharit/Baigan Bhurta, Saoji Paneer, Saoji Egg Curry, Saoji Chicken, Varhadi Chicken, Chicken Curry Half/Full, Chicken Kolhapuri, Chicken Malwani, Saoji Mutton, Mutton Kolhapuri, Mutton Curry, Varhadi Mutton, Mutton Malwani, Fish Koliwada, Fish Malwani.

Varan Bhat, Dal Khichadi, Masala Bhat, Masala Bhat with Kadhi, Gola Bhat, Gola Bhat with Chinchecha Saar, Wada Bhat with Kadhi, Amati, Fodniche Varan, Dal Kolhapuri, Dal Kanda, Dal Palak Lahsunia.

I requested Mahesh Babu – The waiter to guide what should I have as a non-veg. in Marathi Cuisine?

Mutton Kolhapuri – He suggested.

Ok – said I.

Mutton Kolhapuri, Phulka/Chapati (4), Butter Milk and Mineral Water – The request placed.

The service was quick. Within minutes my order was served.

Hot, Splendid, Delicious, Mouth-Watering, Lavish, Tempting, Perfectly Cooked, A Little Spicy – Mutton Kolhapuri.

Food – Great. Value for money.

How much do I pay?

Mutton Kolhapuri (4 pcs.) – Rs. 320, Phulka/Chapati (4) – Rs. 60, Butter Milk – Rs. 35 and Mineral Water – Rs. 20.

Total – Rs. 456 including SGST/CGST.

I will say – New Maharashtra Sadan is a great place to experience/relish authentic Maharashtrian cuisine in Delhi.

I may visit again if again I tour Delhi – maybe for breakfast.

For breakfast, they serve – Upma, Poha, Batata Wada/Aloo Bonda, Poha with Chana Rassa, Batata Wada Chat, Wada Pav, Sabudana Wada, Sabudana Khichdi, Misal Pav etc. etc.

And their quote: Enjoy the Life with Every Bite.

So true. The journey continues..
