Vegetable Kolhapuri

After finding a great indian grocer recently, we set about to cook something new, and this is what we found;

Main Ingredients;

  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 capsicum, chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp cuminseeds
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp tandoori powder
  • 1 tbsp coriander, chopped
  • 1 cup water

Vegetables to boil;

  • 2 potatoes, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 tbsp peas

Chilli Paste;

  • 2 Onions
  • 1 tbsp crushed ginger
  • 4 red chillies
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 tsp sugar
  1. Put the vegetables to boil on to boil while you prepare the rest of the dish.
  2. Put the red chilli powder, coriander powder, tumeric powder, tandoori powder in a small container in preparation for adding all at once later.
  3. Make the Paste; mash 2 tomatoes, then add the rest of the paste ingredients, mixing well to form a runny paste.
  4. Heat the oil in a pot, drop in the cumin seeds and wait till they start spitting;
  5. Add chopped onion, saute for a while until the onion gets a little colour to them
  6. Add the mix of spices you put together earlier and saute until the oil seperates
  7. Add garam masala and a cup of water, and simmer for 3 minutes
  8. Add all the vegetables (boiled and otherwise), and simmer the mixture allowing the sauce to thicken.
  9. Stir in the lemon juice and remove from the heat and it’s ready to serve.

Sprinkle a little chopped coriander leaves over the dish when you serve it. We served it on basmati rice. Everyone loved it.
