Kolhapur is known for its hot and spicy Cuisine. Kolhapuri masala is made with dry red chilies, coconut and lot of spices. I had some authentic ready masala powder that was sent to me by a cousin living there. You can prepare it at home as well. I have shared the link of the recipe in the post.
Delicious veg and non veg dishes can be prepared with this masala.
Today I have made mixed vegetable curry. You can use any vegetables of your choice. This can be served with plain rice or bhakri.
