Vegetable Kolhapuri

I haven’t heard much about kolhapuri masala till i read it in Nupur’s site and I was tempted by Bongmom’s Paneer Kolhapuri recipe to try my own version of vegetable kolhapuri. So i prepared the kolhapuri masala first based on this recipe and used the vegetables from my fridge – beans, butter beans, capsicum and corn. I served this for lunch with royal tomato pulav. This was a bigger hit with dosa for dinner:-). Actually the taste was a bit too spicy for me. You can adjust the masala according to your taste.

Vegetable Kolhapuri


100 gm beans , chopped into 1 inch pieces

1/3 cup fresh butter beans

1/3 cup frozen sweet corn kernels

1 green capsicum, cut into bite size pieces

1 yellow capsicum, cut into bite size pieces

1 large onion finely sliced

2 medium size tomatoes chopped finely

1/3 cup grated coconut

2 tbsp kolhapuri masala ( adjust according to taste)

1/2 tsp jeera

1/2 tsp garlic paste

4 tbsp oil

salt as required


  1. Parboil the beans and butter beans and keep aside.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in kadai. Add the onions and saute well.Now add the grated coconut and saute again.Now add the chopped tomatoes and saute till  they turn soft. Cool this, add 2 tbsp of kolhapuri masala and grind into a smooth paste.
  3. Now heat 2 tbsp of oil in a kadai. Add jeera and after it splutters add the capsicum pieces and fry. Now add the ground masala paste and fry. To this add beans, butter beans and sweet corn. Add little bit of water and salt as required, and bring it to boil.Allow it to simmer till the gravy becomes thick.
  4. Vegetable Kolhapuri is ready to serve. You can serve it with white rice, pulav or rotis.
