There is something great about kalvan... it seems homely and special at the same time! Indeed, this authentic Maharashtrian delicacy is an all-time favourite.
The Vegetable Kalvan features an assortment of veggies cooked with milk and a paste of roasted coconut and spices. Roasting the coconut heightens the aroma and taste of the spice paste, giving the kalvan its characteristic taste.
Pair it with whole wheat chapatis for a truly soul-warming meal.
