Even though my friend Sam and I arrived in Pune around sunrise on zero hours of sleep, we explored throughout the morning and day with our new friend Dharmesh and kept it going with an epic nighttime street food tour of JM Road that I’ll never forget. Join us as we cap off our first day in Pune in the best way possible: by stuffing our bellies with some mouthwatering Maharashtrian food!

Here are the amazing foods Sam, Dharmesh, and I ate on JM Road!

- Masal Puri

The first thing we tried was the colorful Masal Puri, which is made up of puris (hollow, unleavened, deep-fried bread balls) that are topped with a hot masala gravy containing puffed rice, green peas, chili powder, chaat masala, garam masala, coriander powder, and more, along with onions, tomatoes, coriander leaves, and crunchy chickpea noodles called sev. It was fresh, crunchy, and bursting with spices without being spicy-hot.

-Pani Puri

Next, I had to go for one of my favorite dishes from my first trip to India, Pani Puri, a traditional Maharashtrian dish that consists of a puri that is punctured and then filled with a delicious, minty soup or sauce that contains chili, tamarind chutney, chaat masala, chickpeas, onion, and potatoes. It exploded in my mouth and was every bit as flavorful as I remembered!

-Sponge Dosa

Our next food conquest was the sponge dosa, also known as the set dosa, a type of Indian pancake or crepe which gets its name from its soft, light, and spongy texture. It was served with a spicy tomato-garlic chutney, a tropical mint-coconut Chutney, and a potato mash. The tomato-garlic chutney was so hot, I needed to go back to the mint-coconut to cool my mouth down! The sponge dosa is my favorite dosa I’ve ever had!

-Tawa Pulao

With my stomach ready for more outstanding Indian street food, we continued along JM Road and found some Tawa Pulao, a spice-filled fried rice dish that is cooked on a flat grill called a tawa and contains green peas, onions, tomatoes, and pav bhaji masala powder. The rice wasn’t too soft, kind of al dente, and the dish itself wasn’t overbearingly hot. It reminded me of a Chinese rice dish, but with Indian flavors, and was absolutely delicious.


The final thing we tried on our nighttime street food tour of Pune was a refreshing, creamy, spiced buttermilk drink that is made from yogurt, masala, and various spices. The milk is strong, rich, and pure, with a hint of the various spices inside it. It was the perfect way to cool down and settle our stomachs after a long night of eating spicy foods!
