India has a number of foods, On one hand, you will get the proper five-course meal, complete with the proper ambience and candlelights. While on the other, you will also get the roadside junk food.

Maharashtrian Thali

A thali usually includes two vegetables, a dal, salad, rotis, rice, papad and vadas. Durvankur, Shabari, Krishna, Shreyas are the most prominent eateries. The sitafal rabdi, aloo chee bhaji, jawari bajri bhakri, waal, amti, taak, puri and poli are some of the favorite items.

North Indian Food

North Indian cuisine is distinguished by the proportionally high use of dairy products; milk, paneer, ghee (clarified butter), and yoghurt (yogurt, yoghourt) are all common ingredients. Gravies are typically dairy-based. Other common ingredients include chilies, saffron, and nuts. Popular dishes include paratha, roti, kebabs, makki ki roti,sarso ka saag, buknu, gujiya, chaat etc. which is served at Lucknowi, Only Parathas and The Great Punjab

South Indian Food

South Indian cuisine is distinguished by a greater emphasis on rice as the staple grain, the liberal use of coconut and particularly coconut oil and curry leaves, and the ubiquity of sambar and rasam at meals. South Indian food varies wildly from the ubiquitous paper masala dosa, wada sambar and uthappa. Vaishali, Rupali, Coffee House, Dosa Diner are some of the famous restaurants serving south Indian food.

Street Stalls

Street food is prepared then and there in the open air, is incredibly at low prices and service is quick.There is lack of proper seating. Street food ranges from the original chaat fare through South Indian idlis and dosas, the vada-pau, Moghlai kababs and biryanis, sweets like jalebis, balushahis, and gulab jamuns, snacks such as puri-bhaji or stuffed paratha and innovative dishes such as Frankies and rolls of all shapes and sizes.

Gujarati Thali

Gujarati cuisine is predominantly vegetarian. A typical Gujarati thali consists of roti, daal or kadhi, rice and sabzi. (a dish made up of different combinations of vegetables and spices, which may be stir fried, curry-like, or even dry boiled). Many gujarati dishes have a blend of sweetness, like Shrikhand, Basundi, Puran Poli etc. Some of the popular restaurants are Zaika, Ashoka and Sukant
