Gujarati Stuffed Mixed Vegetable Curry All of my recipes for this week are from Tarla Dala's site. It has been a great resource and I love watching her videos as well. She makes even a hard recipe sound very easy to make.
Gujarati Stuffed Mixed Vegetable Curry After seeing lot of Gujarati Sambhariya dishes online, I'm assuming it means a stuffed dish -- correct me if I'm wrong, my gujji friends. So in today's dish, mixed vegetables like tindora (ivy gourd), eggplant, baby potatoes are stuffed and cooked with a yummy coconut stuffing. But the veggies can be easily customized to one's likes and preferences. Pressure cooking makes making this dish a breeze to make -- 2 whistles you have perfectly cooked vegetables. This dish tastes great with rotis or rice.
