Top 10 Popular Street Foods to Try at Khar – Mumbai

The word Khar is derived from the Marathi word “Khara”, which means salty; this is attributed to the fact that most of Khar was only a marshland of salty sea water in the past. Over time, Khar has developed into one of the most exclusive areas of the city and is even home to many Bollywood celebrities, probably due to the fact that it remains green and peaceful throughout the year. With such a posh crowd residing in the area, food outlets opened up quickly to cater to the population here.
