The South Konkan region of the Indian states of Maharashtra and Goa is known for its traditional Malvani cuisine. Although most meals in Malvani cuisine are not vegetarian, there are several that are. Despite being a separate cuisine, it has influences from both Goan and Maharashtrian food.

Coconut is widely used in Malvani cuisine in a variety of ways, including grated, dry-grated, fried, coconut paste, and coconut milk. Dried red chillies and other spices including coriander seeds, peppercorns, cumin, cardamom, ginger, and garlic are common ingredients in masalas.
