Sai bhaji, a traditional bhaji from the sindhi repertoire is a nutritious and balanced meal in itself when served with Cooked Rice or rotis. This is because it uses an extensive set of ingredients ranging from greens and dal to veggies too, which when perked up with tomatoes, spice powders and pastes becomes a tongue-tickling and sumptuous bhaji. Here is a quick and easy version made using the Pressure Cooker , which enables you to cook the varied greens and veggies all at one shot. It also aids the flavours to fuse well, resulting in a dish that has a bit of sourness, a bit of sweetness, a bit of spice, and a lot of joy!
- Heat the oil in a pressure cooker and add the cumin seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the onions, ginger-garlic paste and green chilli paste and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add the chilli powder, coriander-cumin seeds powder, turmeric powder, tomatoes, chana dal, potatoes and brinjal, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the spinach, khatta bhaji, fenugreek leaves, dill leaves, salt and ½ cup of water, mix well and pressure cook on a medium flame for 2 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Keep aside to cool slightly.
- Blend it till the mixture is coarse using a hand blender.
- Serve immediately.
