Hailing from the Kolhapur region as the name suggests, this is a medium spicy gravy with the enticing tang of tomatoes and the crunch of sautéed onions.
Cashews give the gravy a rich flavour and mouth-feel, while a horde of spice powders and pastes, including a special Malvani Masala, give the Basic Kolhapuri Gravy a brilliant flavour. Being a tangy and medium-spicy one, this gravy is quite versatile and goes well with a range of vegetables, paneer and beans too.
