An intensely flavoured mixed vegetable subzi from the kitchens of Maharashtra, the highlight of the Vegetable Kalvan is a rich paste of tomatoes, onions, coconut, other regular flavour enhancers and spice powders.
This paste together with a traditional tempering forms the mouth-watering gravy that holds an assortment of colourful and crunchy veggies like beans, carrots and cauliflower. A little bit of milk added to the gravy helps to balance the flavours and enhance the mouth-feel of this dish. Enjoy it hot with rice or rotis .
