Here are two lipsmacking recipes which go very well with chapatis or ghadichi poli (a spin on the traditional roti)

Kachhya tamatyachi bhaaji

Serves 2


4 medium sized green tomatoes (diced- about 1 inch in size)

1/2 tsp red chili powder

1/2 tsp garam masala

jaggery to taste

salt to taste
For tempering

1/3 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp mustard

a pinch of asafoetida

3 green chilies- diced

1. Heat 2 tsp of oil, add mustard seeds and when they pop, add turmeric, asafoetida and green chilies.

2. Saute for 1-2 min and add the diced green tomatoes. Add salt and let it cook for 15 minutes.

3. After the tomatoes are completely cooked, add the chili and garam masala. Let cook for another 5-10 minutes, stir in the jaggery.

4. Garnish with coriander and serve hot with rotis.

Besanwale capsicum/ Pith perleli mirchi

Serves 2

2 green peppers/capsicums- diced

2-3 tbsp besan

1/3 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garam masala

1/3 tsp mustard

1/3 tsp turmeric

a pinch of asafoetida

salt to taste

jaggery to taste (1 tsp)

3 tbsp oil

1. Heat oil, add the mustard seeds, and when they pop, add turmeric and asafoetida.

2. Add the green peppers and salt and let them cook for 5-10 minutes.

3. When they are almost done, add the chili and garam masala and jaggery.

4. Saute for 5-10 minutes and add the besan gradually -1/2 tsp at a time, mixing uniformly.

5. Cover and let cook for another 10 minutes, stirring in between so as to prevent the besan from sticking to the bottom and burning.

6. The besan will change color when cooked (turn darker in color and give out a distinct aroma).

7. Turn off the stove and serve hot with rotis.
