Veg Kolhapuri

Hello and welcome back to Slurrpy. How was it then at your neck of woods? We are back and doing great with our authentic Malvani and Kolhapuri recipes, handpicked from the coast of Maharashtra where we went road-tripping and it’s all coming to you, one day at a time.

By the way, do you know what I’ve found out in this road trip?

1. Boys are extremely easy to travel with. They are in fact very good. No tantrums. I like company like that.

2. Maharashtra has one of the richest cuisines when it comes to flavor and taste: I wonder why it never got its due importance.

3. Malvani/Konkani/Kolhapuri – all of these are extremely easy to cook and it fits perfectly with our month’s theme.

Starting at 4, our first pit stop was at a road-side dhaba where South-Indian breakfast ruled the roost. Certainly, nothing to talk about. But our next pit stop in the Bombay-Kolhapur highway was Kolhapur, which is known for its raging spicy food – both vegetarian or non-vegetarian. This is one of the first vegetarian Kolhapuri recipes I picked up while on road trip and I assure you, vegetarian lovers will love this. Full of flavor and taste, this Veg Kolhapuri Recipe was toned down a bit from its inspiration owing to my Bengali tastebuds. You can alter the chili and heat according to your taste.
