Piaja Sandha Bhaja ( Onion flower stalk fry )
Cooking Time Required: 10-15 mins
Cost of preparation: 15-20 rupees
Ingredients: Piaja Sandha/Onion flowers stalks ( 1 bunches ), potato ( 1 no, medium
sized ), dry red chillis ( 2-3 nos.), roasted cumin-chilli powder ( 1/3 tsp ), turmeric ( 2-3 pinch ), salt to taste, vegetable oil ( 3-4 tsp ), pancha phutana ( 1/5 tsp ).
Preparation: Wash and cut the onion flower stalks into inch sized pieces.
Wash and cut the potato into small pieces so that both vegetables can cook togather.
Cooking: Heat a non-stick pan. Drizzle a little oil. Turn the flame to high.
Add the broken red chillis and pancha-phutana. Allow seeds to crackle.
Add the potato and onion stalk pieces. Sprinkle turmeric and salt. Mix well and cook
covered for 8-10 mins. Stir occasionally so that the vegetables do not stick to the pan.
Sprinkle the chilli-cumin powder, mix well and remove from the stove.
Serve hot with rice or rotis.
