Mumbai people love food and life and that can be clearly seen in the way they cook food. From pani puris to kebabs, Mumbai is a city of millions of street venders.
Given below is the list of my favorite street food in Mumbai:
If you love having a combination of sweet and sour food, then Mumbai Pani puri is the best you can have. In this the vendors use a crisp fried sphere in which the filling of potato, chickpeas and sprouts is done. After that they dunk it into a liquid that is a blend of exotic ingredients such as Tamarind, Jaggery, Mint and spices.
It tastes fantastic and you have to eat it whole in one go.
Pav Bhaji is a finger-licking dish that you can find easily on the Mumbai streets. Thick Vegetable Masala is served with fluffy rolls that smells and tastes amazing. I like my Pav Bhaji served with extra butter and lemon juice.
Skewered Kebabs hanging from smoking stalls is a mouth-watering sight. You just cannot not have them whenever you visit Mumbai. Tender beef seekh kebabs are must have for every food lover.
Vada Pav is the signature dish of Mumbai. It is a dish that is a favorite of almost every Mumbaikar. It is basically a potato patty that is mashed with exotic, garlic and coriander. It is then dipped in chickpea floor and fried golden.
This Vada is then placed between a Pav that is well buttered. Vada Pav is served best with green chutney.
It is one of the most common street food of Mumbai that is crunchy and sweet and sour in taste. It is a mixture of puffed rice, chopped onion and tomato, and tamarind chutney. It tastes amazing and should be eaten while strolling on the beach for best experience.
Masala Kheema Pav
If you love minced meat, then it is a must have when you visit Mumbai. It is super tasty and spicy.
Chicken Tikka Rolls
Chicken Tikka Rolls tastes best when served hot. Many street vendors sell these rolls and you cannot have your fill of them as they are so delicious.
Channa Bhathura is amazing and spicy in taste. One plate of Channa Bhatura is enough for an individual. Have it with a sweet lassi.
Dosa is a south Indian dish, but it is also very commonly sold on the streets of Mumbai. They are available in different varieties and are very delicious.
Kala Khatta is a must on a hot summer day. Available in different flavors, it is a favorite of children and adults alike.
