Kolhapur is famous for its spicy food, and so is the dish Maas Kolhapuri. This fiery dish is prepared from a variety of spices and the pungency is flared up by the use of red chillies. Maas Kolhapuri, when served with chapathis or rice, will make for a spicy treat that will make you run for water with every bite of its peppery piquancy.
