About Rajasthani pittor ki sabji Recipe

Today I am here with an awesomely delicious and easy dish from Rajasthani delicacy . You can prepare it for any occasion or in daily meal. Generally pittors are deep fried before putting in Curry but to be healthier side, I shallow fried these beauties and even then no compromise with taste and texture. Pittors can be served as it is too with sauce/ chutney to spice up your evening tea/coffee. So what are you waiting for, prepare it and enjoy.
