Vegetable Kolhapuri with Soya

I love spicy food that's by now everyone know. So I wanted to make this spicy gravy called Kohlapuri but not with same old ingredients but my way with Lal michi Thecha. Thecha normally made with green chilies, garlic , peanuts and other spices but I wanted to make my really spicy so I made it with red dry chilies , garlic and salt and vinegar. That's it and I mix this chutney in my onion puree and voila result is amazing. You can adjust spice level according to your taste buds. I like it spicy so I added more. This is my way of dish. Serve this with rice or paratha and you are in spice heaven.


2 cups mixed vegetables ( I had cauliflower, corn, peas, carrot, capsicum, zuchini)
1/4 cup soya soaked and rinsed
2 onion puree preferebly red one
1 tbsp tomato puree
2 tbsp Thecha
salt to taste
1 tsp cumin and coriander powder
1 tsp garam masala
Lime juice to taste
2 tsp oil

For Thecha :
15 red dried chili pepper
15 garlic cloves
salt to taste
vinegar to taste

Mix everything in blender and make a fine puree. Keep it aside.


Put onion and two spoons of thecha in grinder and make a fine puree out of it.
Heat a non stick and add oil. Then add onion puree and cook till all the water is gone and raw onion smell too.
Then add tomato puree and add powder masala ,salt ,  mix well , add vegetables and mix it.
Add enough water to cook vegetables. If you need gravy then adjust the water quantity. I wanted dry so  I added less water.
When vegetables are cooked adjust seasoning.
Before serving add lime juice and mix it and serve hot with Bhakri, naan or steamed rice.
Leftover thecha you can use it for sandwiches or spread or as chutney also.
