The vegetables cook in their own juices .... hehehe .... literally .... and that is what that gives it that distinct flavour and taste.
I made this to have with puris on the weekend ... but ended up having it with something completely different .... in a place completely different too. The story is here.
Need : Vegetables cut into cubes ( I had aloo, kaddu, parwal, baingan ... can add a lot more), chopped onion, kalaunji, haldi powder, whole red chillies, a little mustard / any cooking oil and salt to taste.
How to: Heat a little oil. Add the chillies and kalaunji. Then add the onions and fry a little. Now add all the vegetables, haldi powder and salt.
Note I did not add any sugar as the kaddu / pumpkin will give the required sweetness.
Cover and cook till the vegetables are done.
It should be slightly mushy.
Goes great with hot rotis/ parathas/ puris.
