Hmmm...not too sure how much my non-Bangali friends may like this concoction of vegetables n spices but I would recommend a try. :)
1 tbsp shorshe/rai/sarso (mustrad) seeds
1 tbsp methi (fenugreek) seeds
1 tbsp saunf (fennel) seeds
1 tbsp radhuni/ajmod (wild celery) seeds
1 tbsp kalonji (black onion/caraway) seeds
Mix them together and store in an air tight bottle for future use.
1 cup muli (raddish) cut into 1 inch cubes
1 cup kumbro (red pumpkin) cut into 1 inch cubes
1 cup begun (brinjal) cut into 1 inch cubes
1 cup bhindi (ladies fingers) cut into 1 inch cubes
1 bunch palak (spinach) OR pui shaak, washed and cut into 1 inch cubes
1 tomato cut into 4 pieces
1 tsp oil, can use mustard oil if you like the taste
1 tbsp phoron (tempering)
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 green chillies, split into half
Place the pressure cooker on medium high.
Add the oil, let it warm and add 1 tbsp of the phoron (tempering spices). Let it splutter.
