Veg Kolhapuri Recipe | How to make veg kolhapuri | Vegetable Kolhapuri with detailed photos. This spicy and thick gravy recipe is prepared by using mixed vegetables and homemade spicy Kolhapuri masala.  Veg Kolhapuri is originated from the city of Kolhapur in Maharashtra.

In this veg Kolhapuri recipe, I am using fresh homemade kolhapuri masala prepared by dry roasting and grinding of some spices and dry coconut, which makes this recipe very aromatic and flavourful. Here I had made dry veg Kolhapuri, but you can also make gravy for this recipe.

For more rich flavour, you can add fresh cream in this recipe. The cream reduces the spiciness of the dish so use it sparingly.  You can also add 3-4 cashew nuts. 

This spicy Veg Kolhapuri serves as the main course with Roti, Aloo Puri, Garlic Naan, or with Rumali Roti
