Welcome to Part II of the round-up of Regional Cuisines of India: Maharashtrian Cuisine event! Today, Part II moves on to the main meal, with its myriad components all represented in these beautiful entries. We start off by looking at some artistically arranged full meals, then enjoy each of the elements separately. Here, you will find recipes for fragrant spice mixtures, tasty condiments, and the full spectrum of vegetable dishes, ranging from salads to stir-fries to curries. We wind up with some sips of cool beverages.

Any plagiarizers lurking around, back off! All pictures are the sole property of the bloggers who sent them in as entries. Do not copy!
