Best Places To Enjoy Mutton Bhakri In Pune

By Shreya Goswami

If you are visiting Pune, then having Mutton Bhakri at least once is a must! When it comes to Maharashtrian cuisine, Mutton Bhakri represents a very local platter that has the potential for global appeal— since the bhakri is made using millet, which now is popular all across the world due to its health benefits.

Mutton Bhakri is a hearty meal consisting of a spicy mutton curry served with Bhakri, which is a type of flatbread made from millet flour. The mutton is typically cooked with a variety of spices, including cumin, coriander, turmeric, and chilli powder, and is usually served hot with a garnish of fresh coriander leaves.

  • Maratha Samrat

    every Maharashtrian restaurant worth its salt will have Bhakri. It’s a prerequisite. But Maratha Samrat is one of the best when it comes to Mutton Bhakri, which has three branches in Kothrud, Baner and Camp but the best one is served at the branch of Camp. All their food is outstanding. The thing about Bhakris is that you have to eat them super-hot, otherwise they become like cardboard. But their Bhakris are really soft. There are others that are good, but many people's go-to place for great Maharashtrian food and service will always be Maratha Samrat.

  • BhaCurry

    A rooftop place in Moshi with a pretty but unique ambience, BhaCurry has one of the finest Maharashtrian cuisine dishes to offer, including Mutton Bhakri. You should explore all the Bhakri combos here. From Pithla Bhakhri to Kala Rassa Chicken and Bhakri, you’ll get everything here. Always ask for Bajari chi Bhakri rather than Jowar Chi Bhakri. 

  • Hotel Nagpur Maratha

    Hotel Nagpur Maratha is not just a small restaurant but it’s an emotion. A family runs this place in their old house. They have converted their house into this small, cosy place which will definitely give you the experience of a village home. The Mutton Bhakri here gets an added allure because of the way the family sources the ingredients and cooks them. The owner himself cooks all the food items whereas the jowar, bajari and gahu used to make the Bhakris come from their own farm.

It is also recommended that those who don’t want to eat mutton should also try the Chicken Thali with Bhakris.
