Kolhapuri Rassa

This is a very traditional and typical Kolhapuri dish that all of us at home used to relish with puris when my mom made it. Typically rassa's are made with meat in them but this is a vegetarian version and its yum o! (ss Rachel Ray would put it). It is really spice (if you choose to make it I did not take a pic this time but will update as soon as I make it again.


  1. Yellow onion - 1, finely chopped
  2. Tomato - 1, finely chopped
  3. Potato - 2 medium sized, cubed
  4. Cauliflower - 1 whole, cut into small pieces
  5. Ginger - 2 inch piece, chopped
  6. Garlic - 5-6 cloves
  7. Green chillies - 7-8
  8. Fresh corrriander - 1 bunch
  9. Oil - 1 tbsp
  10. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  11. Haldi - 1/2 tsp
  12. Hing - 1/4th tsp
  13. Jeera - 1 tsp
  14. Salt
  15. Red chilli powder

  1. Make a paste with the ginger, garlic, green chillies, salt, red chilli powder, jeera, corriander and set aside.
  2. Heat oil and add mustard, haldi, hing and let the mustard seed splutter
  3. Add onions and sautee until soft. Add the potatoes, cauliflower and tomatoes and sautee for 10 mins.
  4. Add enough water to soak all the vegetables and add the paste to them and mix well.
  5. Close the lid of the pan and let the vegetables steam and get cooked in the water and paste until well done. Add water as needed.
  6. Garnish with fresh corriander and serve hot with puris for the ultimate comfort meal:)
