    Instead of boiling the mixed vegetables I blanched it in boiling water. This keeps the colour. I followed the rest of the recipe. It is good and tasty. Thanks.


    Hello, Dhaliya is not split chickpea but its broken wheat, I don't understand after adding dhaliya to this recipe, you dont need an accompaniment for it, it will become a meal by itself.
