Here’s a quick and easy everyday subzi with a classic Malvani touch. The rustic mealy texture of cooked kala chana is enhanced beautifully by the spiciness of the Malvani gravy and the tang of tamarind pulp.

Common veggies like tomatoes and onions along with ginger and garlic add taste and volume to the dish. The Malvani gravy, though made with everyday ingredients and spices, has a traditional flavour and aroma that’ll make you drool.

It uses a lot of red chillies and has an appetizing reddish brown colour. You can keep some in stock in the freezer, to use instantly when required.

This yummy Kala Chana Subzi tastes very good with hot steamed rice, possibly laced with a little ghee if you are feeling indulgent.

You can also have a go at other Maharashtrian recipes like Maharashtrian Patal Bhaji or Maharashtrian Papdi and Moong Dal Vadi Subzi .

Helo, Thanks for sharing this recipe I would like to try it but need to ask you to clarify something. The recipe list refers to Basic Malvani Paste The method (no. 7) refers to Malvani Gravy? Which one should be added to the Subzi - just the paste or the complete paste/gravy?
