For people who are cluelessly wondering what is this kat that R. Madhavan is talking about, let us explain to you. Misal pav is generally served with kat, which is also known as tarri. With a strong onion, garlic, and Maharashtrian Kala or Goda Masala flavour, kat or tarri is an extremely spicy mixture.

A dish from the Indian state of Maharashtra is called misal pav. It comprises misal, a hot curry typically cooked with pav and moth beans. Onions, lemon, coriander, farsan or sev, and other garnishes are placed on top of the dish.

Kolhapur’s misal pav is renowned for its distinctive flavour and high spice level. Misal pav comes in a variety of varieties, including Ahmednagar misal, Nashik misal, Khandeshi misal, and Pune misal. Shev misal, dahi (yogurt) misal, and kalya masalyachi misal are more varieties.
