Kadai Vegetable with Chapati

IMG_3651Hi friends! Hasn’t it been a while now since I posted a recipe? So, here you go. On a Sunday, sometimes I try making something different from our routine South Indian food. One of the Sundays I decided to make Chapati and Bhaji. Whenever I make North Indian side dishes for Chapati on Sundays, it is generally Paneer. This time, however, I wanted to try making something else and I found different veggies as well lying in the refrigerator. What more do you need? I decided to make Kadai Vegetable. I browsed on the net for a recipe and found one on Veg Recipes of India. I took the basic recipe from that page, but then, I did variations as per my taste.

Ingredients

For the Dry Masala Powder

1 tbsp. Coriander Seeds

½ tbsp. Jeera

1 inch piece of Cinnamon

3 Cardamoms

2 Cloves

4-5 Black Peppers
