Top 5 Dishes to Try at Prakash in Dadar

We got a chance to try top 5 authentic Marathi dishes at Prakash Shakahari Upahar Kendra, and here’s what we think.

1. Thalipith


One of their best-sellers, Thalipith is kind of a savoury pancake made with a blend of various grains and flours. Vegetables like onions and coriander are added to the mix, along with ginger to give it flavour. It is served piping hot with curd. This dish is perfect for any meal. A simple dish, but with a high nutritional value, we absolutely loved it!

Dudhi Halwa

A perfect way to end your meal, Dudhi i.e. Bottlegourd Halwa is a sweet lover’s heaven. Grated Dudhi, cooked in milk, ghee and topped with cashews is just the right amount of sweet, and we couldn’t get enough of it. The Halwa here is another of their hits and we totally understand why. A definite recommendation!
