about Chai-n-Chilli


Chai-n-Chilli is Sonali and Kiran’s love for food. It started 6 years ago as as a small catering business serving Indian desserts and vegetarian delicacies from home. Sonali specializes in Maharashtrian cuisine with her delectable puran polis, Shrikhand and many more such traditional foods. Being brought up in Mumbai, she grew up enjoying pani puri at Juhu Chowpatty and the humble vada paav. Through Chai ‘N’ Chilli, Sonali aspires to bring the essence of Mumbai to Melbourne. ..

Voted as best breakfast in the world – Misal….need we say more! Our very own humble preparation of mix sprouted beans cooked in the traditional seasonings to make a wholesome nutritious meal. Top it up with Farsan – a salty savory crunchy snack and it is just a perfect fix to make your day.
