Malvani Bhajlela Vataap – A Sunday Special Malvani Base Gravy
“Vataap” denotes a fine paste or gravy, and “Bhajlela” implies Roasted. This Vataap gets its body, texture, and sweetness from freshly grated coconut and onion. It also gets its spice from Byadgi chili, black pepper, cloves, ginger, and garlic, the flavor from cumin seeds, and a relaxing effect from poppy and coriander seeds.

The mixture needs to be ground using a Pataa (a stone grinder that combines a large, flat stone with a cylindrical stone) or a mixer. The mixture is ground on a stone and repeatedly beaten, dragged, and crushed on the Pataa to create a paste-like structure. This must be done by hand. The aroma of Vataap is Stoney and improves the taste.
