I had learnt this recipe from a TV show and tried it recently when I ran short of vegetables at home. This is a simple, quick and tasty side dish ideal for phulkas. These kinds of recipes using papads or salted and sun-dried vegetable preparations originate from Rajastan where fresh vegetables are less available due to their climatic conditions and landscape. They are unique in taste and is slightly greasy.
