The holy month of Shravan, the fifth month of the year as per the Hindu calendar, is when devout Hindus turn vegetarian, many fast on Mondays and Saturdays. Lighter, less oily and spicy food, is generally eaten, but there is no compromise on taste and flavours. Sabudana (sago), potato, Rajgira (Amaranth) and Sinhghada (Indian water chestnut) are commonly used in preparing Shravan food.

Many restaurants in Mumbai offer Shravan delicacies. You don’t have to be fasting to enjoy these special “upvas” dishes, Go soon. Shravan's set to come to an end in early September, but most of these restaurants serve Upwas food through the year


Soam, Babulnath Road, Chowpatty

Must eat here is the Farali Pattice, the melt-in-the-mouth, Gujarati delicacy made of potato, with a crisp coating.


Panshikar, Girgaum

Tuck into the Rajgira Puri Bhaaji or enjoy the Shengdana Usal with a variety of lentils, spices and peanuts. Also in Vile Parle (East) and Dadar


Prakash Shakahari Upahaar Kendra, Dadar (West)

Sabudana Vada and Sabudana Khichdi are the most popular 


Mee Marathi, Vile Parle (East)

Go for the Sabudana Vada, it attracts crowds here

Trupti, Dadar West

Best for fasting Thalipeeth and Rajgira Puri 

Jeevan, Vile Parle (East)

Known for its delicious potato toast and sweet kachori


Tambe Arogya Bhawan, Dadar (West)

Batata Chivda and Shengdana Misal are my personal favourites here


Ladu Samrat, Lalbaug, Parel

The Farali Masala Dosa here is a must-have. Stuffed with oiled peanuts, Aloo Bhaji and Sabudana Khichdi


Aaswad, Dadar West

Try out the Sabudana Puri and the Upwas Misal, they’re delicious


Diva Maharashtracha, Mahim

Don’t miss the Sabudana Vada, have it with sweetened curd... delicious
