This is one of the easiest bong food that you can make. Especially good for a cold wintery night and goes best with fresh hot phulkas.
The whole idea of making bati-charchari is to use the freshest vegetables available at the time. The ingredients are pretty flexible, I just used stuff that I had at home and this needs no special spices either. You can add carrot, beans anything you find at the local grocer or tucked away in your refrigerator.
- Baby potatoes 5,6
- Pearl onions - 4,5 (I used frozen ones you can add fresh onions as well)
- Turmeric powder
- Tomatoes 2,3 each cut into 4 halves
- Peas half cup
- Mustard oil
- Turmeric powder 1 tsp.
- Chili powder 1tbsp.
- Green chili 5,6
In a sauce pan take all the vegetables. Add 2-3 tbsp. of mustard oil.
Add turmeric powder, chili powder along with salt and little sugar.
Now pour about 2 cups of warm water and give it a nice mix. Cover and cook on a medium heat without stirring. Once the water almost dries up. slit open the green chilies and drop them in.
Enjoy with hot phulkas.
