There is a reason why this peasant food, simple in its combination and presentation, appeals to the citizens of Maharashtra, home to the port city of Mumbai. I have seen many a Maharashtrian stop by a vendor’s cart next to the bus stop or at the railway station to grab a bowlful of usal and paav for breakfast on the way to work.
