Shev Bhaji

The spicy gravy made with onion, dry coconut and shev. It is very famous dish in Maharashtra. Basically my mother use to make this recipe in very different way because she used “Pata-Varvanta” to grind the gravy masala instead of Grinder. I still remember the taste of that shev bhaji.

Nowadays my husband who is also a good cook make this Shev Bhaji with some variations by adding extra masala. I have learnt this recipe from him.  So today I am very excited to share this spicy recipe the way he cooked.

This is very easy and quick recipe. Make this easy and quick Maharashtrian Style Spicy Gravy Recipe at your home and share your experience with us in the comments section below.
