My husband is extremely fond of Punjabi sabjis. During the past few days with the difficult pregnancy and later the baby, he had ordered out lots of times. Finally it was time to take matters into my hands… I mean in the kitchen !!
I got this recipe from Sharmee’s Passion. Amazing blog..she has so many variety of dishes.
I cooked this recipe differently. I made it more spicy and also found a shorter method to cook. I am always looking for short cuts in the kitchen.
Sid loved this sabji. It’s quite easy to make and I shall make it more often.
This photograph that I took is on a wooden board which my dad got it done for me. Earlier taking pictures was time so time consuming as I had to set the table and iron the base cloth. But due to this wooden board I was done in 5 minutes only! The result came out very good by using my fathers prime lens, which I have taken away for him..Thanks dad and love you for all this and more…
