How to make Sai Bhaji

  2. Wash and chop spinach ,dill (remove the hard and thick steams of dill and spinach) and green chilies and trim the ends of whole cluster beans and make 1 inch size pieces.
  3. Wash,scrap and make thin slice of lotus steam . Wash and soak chana daal in water for approx. 1/2 hour
  4. Heat ghee in a pressure cooker,then add chopped green chilies and asafoetida. Now add ginger,soaked chana daal and spinach ,saute for few seconds.
  5. Add all the vegetables and 2 cups of water and pressure cook for 3-4 whistle on medium heat or till cooked properly.
  6. When cool down completely, open the cooker and slightly mash the curry with a ladle or a whisk.
  7. Some prefer to grind it with a hand blender and make it into a smooth paste,but I prefer to mash it slightly and bite and feel the you can do according to your preference.taste great both ways:)
  8. Add 1/2 cup water(can add 1- 1 .5 cup,according to the thickness u want) then mix and cook for 3-4 minutes on low heat
  9. Add 1 tsp ghee and serve hot

My Tip:

Note- 1 - If raw mango is not available then add mango powder OR lemon juice at the end of cooking. 2--khatta bhaji-Indian sorrel leaves
