For me, Bakarvadi equals Chitale Bandhu, Pune. Period. So I was intrigued when I was introduced to this Bakarvadi from Kolhapur. This Bakarvadi was totally different from its Puneri version. Kolhapuri Bakarvadi not only has a different shape but it has a distinct garlic taste.
Now, which one is better? I am not telling ya. Go and get your own taste buds tickled and decide for yourself! :-D
