You can also add eggplant or lauki, karela, drumstick etc…they taste delicious in this stew!

Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Mid way, stir once to ensure even cooking of vegetables.

PS: this is our cook Ambikas recipe which I grew up on.
Me and my dad loved eating this for lunch along with Dubraj Chawal (a Chattisgarhi variety of Chawal) accompanied by Ambika’s freshly pounded dhania tamatar ki chutney! 🙂
To increase the spice quotient you can add whole red chillies/green chillies.
To add protein you can add boiled chickpeas or diced paneer to the recipe.
