Gajar no Sambharo

In most of the Gujarati thali, you will see a sambharo, which is lightly cooked vegetables to go with your curry and daal. I guess this way you can have 1 portion of veg towards your 5 a day veg and fruit.

I have added bell pepper to this recipe to increase my veg intake and made less spicy by adding less green chillies!


  1. 2-3 carrots (shredded)
  2. 1green bell pepper chopped lengthwise
  3. 1 small tomato
  4. 2 fresh green chilli chopped lengthwise
  5. pinch of sugar
  6. salt to taste
  7. 1tbsp oil
  8. 1 tbsp lemon juice
  9. few methi seeds
  10. 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  11. pinch of hing

In a wok heat the oil add mustard seeds and hing.   After splutter add methi seeds let it brown and add all the vegetables.  Mix it well, let it cook for 3-4minutes on high heat.  Now add salt, sugar and lemon juice.

Take it from the heat and serve with your meal.
