This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. As soon as you step into Madhuri’s apartment you will be wowed by the fabulous view of the Sea Link Bridge, which looks like a painting in her drawing room. Madhuri and her two Persian cats wil greet you and welcome you into her home. She is extremely proud of her roots and culture and every meal served has a story to tell, which she is more than happy to share. You will start with a welcome drink, which depending on the season and the day’s weather, will either be aam ka panna (a drink made from raw mangoes), kokum sharbat (kokum juice) or solkadhi (coconut milk and kokum). As Madhuri and her husband come from two very different regions in Maharashtra, you will be served dishes from the coastal as well as ghat areas. You may try koshimbeers (salads), paale bhaji (leafy greens), suki bhaaji (dry stir-fry), usal (sprouts), amti (lentis), fish curry, prawn curry, bombil bhujna (Bombay duck gravy), kolambi bhaat (prawns pulao), malwani chicken curry, and to finish you’ll enjoy her kheer (rice pudding).
