The Mastani is a purely Pune phenomenon. It is a combination of ice cream, milk, fresh cream and flavours. It is a favourite of every punewala and the name is Mastani. This dish will surely confuse you- Is it an icecream or a milk shake. But whatever it is, Mastani is must try at Sujata Mastani at  Sadashiv Peth.

HolidayIQ Traveller Raghav Bhasin shares, "Pune cuisine relies heavily on the aromatic bulb. Soothe your palate with sweets like Bhakarwadi, a pastry rolled with coriander, tamarind and sesame seeds, or cool off with a thick milkshake made with dried fruit. Pune is considered the cultural capital of Maharashtra. If you want to taste Maharashtrian food, you must go to Sukanta. Its a nice place to try out varieties of local food."
