Surti Papdi Undhiyu (kemcho Series) Gujarati

A well known dish from Gujarati Cuisine "Undhiyu", mostly served everywhere...any gujarati restarunts, weddings or any other functions...with lots of green vegetables in sweet, tangy and green garlicy spicy sauce...i get  craving for Undhiyu in winter days and it was a perfect day today because it is Sankranti Gujarat it goes very well with Jelebi.... normally undhiyu takes quite a lot of time to cook, i've used a diffrent method....

You will need:-

  • 300g Surti Papdi (small one)
  • 100g Pink Yam-cut into chunks
  • 2 Raw Banana-cut into chunks
  • 2 midium potatoes-cut into chunks
  • 4-5 Small Brinjal-slit
  • 1 small sweet potato-cut into chunks
  • 50g Green Tuver(Pigion Peas)-frozen
  • 50g Green Peas-frozen
  • Small Beetroot-cut into chunks
  • 2 small Tomatos
  • 1 cup frshly chopped coriander
  • 1/2 cup dry coconut powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 tbsp crushed green chilli -ginger
  • 2tbsp green garlic(optional)
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp Hing(asafoetida)
  • 2 tbsp Dhana jeera powder
  • 1 tbsp red chilli powder
  • 1tsp garam masala
  • 1tbsp oil -----Mix all the masala and leave  a side.
Methi Muthiya:-Dumplings

  • Fresh or frozen Methi-2 tbsp
  • Gram Flour-2tbsp
  • Wheat Flour-4tbsp
  • salt to taste
  • sugar, lemon juice, oil and ajwain seeds
  • 1tsp green chilli- ginger paste
  • 6-7 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 2tbsp till (sesame seeds)
  • 1tsp Ajwain seeds(carom seeds)
Method:- for Muthiya

Mix all the stuff and make small dumplings. Normally you fry them but, i've baked them in the oven for about 12- 15- minutes. leave  a side.

Now wash all the veges and cut them. Stuff some masaia into brinjal.
Here I've changed something......
Heat the oil in a big pressure Cooker and add the tempering ingredients, after spluter add all the veges and mix.add all the masala and mix well again. Now place the brinjals on the veges and very little water.  Cook till one whistle, turn the heat off.  let it cool for 5-7 minutes, and take the pressure out from thr cooker to stop further cooking.  Now add dumplings in there and let it cook untill they are soft.

Garnish with coriander and serve hot with puris and jelebi.....
