  • Foodies, Assemble! Mahalaxmi Saras Mumbai Exhibition 2018

If you want to experience the best of rural Indian culture (specifically Maharashtrian cuisine), please do yourself a big favor and head to the Mahalaxmi Saras expo at Reclamation Grounds in Bandra!

My aunt casually mentioned to me about this expo on the morning of 31st December, 2014 – and while most of my friends were looking forward to grand NYE plans, i was sold on the simplicity of getting to experience some authentic ‘gaavran’ / local cuisine and handicrafts from across India under one roof, making it a melting pot of cultures and indigenous cuisines.


Mahalaxmi SARAS 2018 dates: 17-29 January, 2018
महालक्ष्मी सरस २०१८ जानेवारी १७-२९, २०१८ ह्या दिवसांतर्गत आयोजित केले जाईल

Here’s a sneak preview of what you could expect:


water zorbing ftw!



Kolhapuri ‘jhanjhanit’ misal pav – don’t miss this!


Roasted ‘hurda’ – my TOP favorite snack. Tastes like corn on the cob, only better.

Original local Maharashtrian cuisine

Food that comes straight from the origin – what i loved best about Saras 2015.

Surmai aka King Fish

Fresh, fried King fish


‘Thaalipeeth’ accompanied by jaggery, lentils, ‘thecha’ and yogurt
