Kolhapuri Koshimbeer


What is "Kolhapuri" in the good, old koshimbeer - you might ask? Well, I agree - Koshimbeer is a koshimbeer after all. But over the years, I have collected so many recipes from friends and family, that I use my own prefixes and suffixes to differentiate. Now, when we make Koshimbeer, we don't add chili powder in it - so that's one factor which stands out in today's recipe.
