sev bhaji recipesev bhaji recipe | shev bhaji | sev bhaji ki sabji | shev chi bhaji with step by step photo and video recipe. maharashtiran cuisine has always been a fusion of south india and north india. it would always have a flavour of both and particularly with the gravy based curries which would use both south indian and north indian technique. sev bhaji recipe is one such gravy recipe which has coconut-based masala from an authentic blend of spices.

generally, most of the indian curries are made with either combination of vegetables, meat or with dairy products like paneer. yet there is another category from the western india where deep-fried snacks are used/combined with spicy/sour gravy and served with bread. sev bhaji or shev bhaji is one such popular variety where spicy gathiya is topped over spicy coconut-based thin gravy. the recipe slightly brushes with other western indian cuisine popular curries like misal pav or even sev tamatar sabzi. well if you ask me, i personally like the shev chi bhaji and sev tamatar version. its because it is much easy and quick to prepare to compare it to misal pav. having said that misal pav is much tastier and flavoured as it touch bases many ingredients.

furthermore, i would like to highlight some of my tips, suggestions and variations for the sev bhaji recipe. firstly, i have prepared the gathiya from the scratch and that should be the ideal for this recipe. having said that, you can also use store-bought gathiya or thick sev which should cut down your cooking time. secondly, combine the sev or gathiya only when you are ready to serve the curry. in other words, top the sev in small batches in a bowl as required. lastly, i have used normal garam masala as i did not had the access to the kala garam masala. but if you have access to it, you should be using it.

finally, i request you to check for my other curry or sabji recipes collection with this post of sev bhaji recipe. it mainly includes recipes like sev tameta nu shaak, methi bhaji, potato curry for masala dosa, poori bhaji, aloo shimla mirch ki sabji, gobhi ki sabji, matar paneer, kaddu ki sabji, paneer bhurji gravy, mushroom ki sabji. further to these i request you to check my other related recipes collection like,
