  • ½ kg of one of the following:
  • cauliflower, cabbage, grated radish, navalkohl, white gourd or snake gourd
  • 2 green chillies (optional)
  • 1.5 tbsp - fresh grated coconut
  • 1 tbsp - bengal gram dal
  • a pinch turmeric
  • a pinch sugar
  • ½ tsp - mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp - oil
  • salt to taste
  • a pinch of asafetida

How to Make Quick Bhajis

  • Wash and dry the vegetable of your choice. Cut it into bite size pieces. Soak the dal for ½ an hour before cooking.
  • Heat oil in a wok. Pop in the mustard seeds, asafetida and turmeric.
  • Add the green chillies. Stir. Put the vegetables and dal into the wok. Sprinkle with salt and sugar.
  • Cook covered. Use a steel plate as a lid for a skillet. On it pour some drinking water.
  • As this heats, it helps cook the pumpkin.
  • When you remove the lid to stir, you can pour in some of the hot water if the bhaji requires moisture.
  • Stir occasionally and check if the vegetables are tender.
  • Just before removing the bhaji from the heat, sprinkle the coconut over it and combine.
  • Garnish with coriander and serve hot with polis or rice.
