IMG-5373Wash, cut and blanch veggies with some salt for a minute. Drain the water and keep aside. Chop the onions and green chilies. Beat eggs in a bowl and add salt, pepper powder, paprika in it. Take the gram flour in a bowl and add the seasonings, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder,garam masala, dry mango powder, asafoetida and a pinch of caraway seeds or ajwain in it. Add water to make a thin batter from it.

Step 2

In a pan, add butter and the above-mentioned tempering. When it splutters, add the chopped onions and green chilies and saute for a minute. Next, add the chopped ginger-garlic and fry again. When these are half fried add the seasonings, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, fennel powder,garam masala, dry mango powder and then add the blanched veggies. Saute them for a while and add the egg batter slowly and cook on a medium flame. Take care not to burn the eggs and for that keep stirring. When the veggies and eggs are half fried, add the gram flour or besan batter and keep stirring again to avoid the formation of lumps. Cook the dish now on a low to medium flame.

Step 3

Note points:–1. Adjust the salt content in the dish as we have put salt three times individually to make the egg batter, gram flour batter, and the main dish.

2. You need to adjust the tangy element i.e, dry mango powder and lemon juice accordingly in the dish but both must be added to get a better grasp on the dish.

3. Use butter to make the dish.

4. You can use other set of veggies too apart from the ones used by me here.

5. You can grate some cheese too over the dish.
