Chapri Ghonto (Summer Vegetables Medley)


  • 2 karela
  • 3 parwal
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 brinjal
  • 4 jhinga
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch of sugar
  • tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • For the chapri
  • 1 cup chana dal soaked overnight
  • For tempering
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 dry red chillies


  1. Chop the vegetables into equal sizes.
  2. Grind the chana dal with a little water and salt. Heat some oil and then tip the entire chana dal batter into it.
  3. It will look like a pancake. Fry both sides well and then break the pancake into big chunks. Your chapri is ready.
  4. Heat some oil. Add the mustard seeds, bay leaves and dry red chilies. Fry the karela first because it takes the longest to cook.
  5. Then add all the vegetables. Sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add some sugar, salt and turmeric.
  6. Cover and cook till done. There is no need to add water as the vegetables will release their own liquid. They stew in their own juices. Before taking it off the flame add some ghee and ginger paste.
My Tip: Don't forget to add that pinch of sugar!
