    Easy to make Indian vegetable curry recipe

    I am not a chef but I learned cooking from my granny, and whenever I make this Rajasthani Style curry everyone loves it very much.

    This curry goes very well with Rice, chapati, Baati and even Bajra or Jawar chapatis and The Khichda of Bajra made especially in winters at Rajasthan.

    Recently I made this curry for some Assamese guests and they loved it so much that during their stay at Rajasthan everyday they asked me to make curry for one meal and this motivated me to why not share this recepie of mine .
    Here you go – Try this and share the pics with mes it will make me super happy to see you cooking what I make .

    Rajasthani Curry – 

    Ingredients – 

    1. Butter Milk – 2 cups ( If it is sour, else 3 cups can be taken ) 

    2.  Gram flour – 3/4 cup

    3. Black pepper – 1/4 tsp

    4. Salt – as per taste ( and suitable for the curry proption which I am making is 1 tea spoon )

    5. Red chillies – 2

    6.Garlic – 1 clove

    1. Fenugreek seeds -1 teaspoon

    2. Jeera powder – 1 teaspoon 

    3. Asafoetida (Hing) – 1/4 tea spoon

    10.Tez patta 

    11.Mustard seeds

    1. Cumin seeds 

    2. Red Chilly Powder 

    3. Take fresh peas, or finely chopped onions or fresh cilantro leaves or Chiwla daal or even any green leafy vegetable whichever you like.

    4. Any oil – preferably Olive oil
      Method – 

    Step 1. – 

    Take butter Milk in a pan, add gram floor to it and then with the help of wooden grinder Gently mix the two unless and until the flour gets completely  mingled into it.

    Like this grinder is appreciated else blend with steel one

    Add salt, black pepper powder, jeera powdet to it.

    Step2 – (Tadka )

    Now take a big spoon, add 2 tea spoon oil to it, heat the spoon on high flame, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, hing, tezz patta, fenugreek seeds to it.

    Also add ginger garlic paste, red chilly powder and at last add the two red chillies breaking them into two pieces.

    Let everything make a crackle noise.

    Step3. – Be safe while doing this, add the Tadka into the buttermilk pan .

    Add water as required.

    Step4 – Immediately take the pan and place it on stove and start stirring it. 

    Stir it continuously on high flame till the curry starts getting a boil ( Do not leave it for a moment before a boil else it will become waste )

    When curry starts boiling reduce the flame, now add the green leafy vegetable, or fresh peas of your choice and let the curry boil for around 45 minutes or as my granny says boil it till it get 500 boils, she says the more it get boils the better it tastes.

    This is how it will look in stage 4

    On completion, it will look like this

    At last granish the curry with fresh cilantro leaves.
    I have added less chilly powder keeping in mind the taste buds of my little brother, I will suggest to add at least 3 tea spoons to enjoy that Rajsthani Flavour and enjoy the hot curry with Rice.

    Share your views.

    I haven’t blogged anything during the month. Along with mom’s sickness the month also taught me to wipe my tears myself, and then wipe tears of family smiling and pretending to be strong.

    The month made me matured and brought in me a different attitude towards life.

    And at the last of November I did some shopping to relax and comfort the other side of me

    Fashion And Woman ! 

    Shopping is a never ending leisure for woman and recently I spent two days continously for shopping at Jaipur during the month of November.

    November is the beginning of winters, and the pink city welcomes the beautiful crowd by its pink glow of the cold.

    I always shop for trends that are long lasting and are simple but elegant so this time What I have got for myself in my shopping bag are – 

    1. Jaipuri Embroided Jackets – 

    This lovely and classy jackets are an style statement, I purchased them from a designer friend.

    And guys I am really loving this embroider jackets, it have got beautiful and very minor embroidery work.

    There are beautiful mirror dangles attached to it, and it goes very well with the 3/4th sleeves one colored Kurta, It can also be teamed up with some classical tops and give us a traditional look.

    I loved Its work very much.

    1. Who doesn’t like jhumkas ? And what if the jhumkas are from Jaipur market?  No matter how much you purchase there will be always  space for many more and same happens with me, I purchased so many of them.

    Apart from this I have got some colorful bangles

    3. An evening gown

    4. An Indo Western Dress

    5. Lovely pair of denims and party wear tops.

    6. Palazzo’s 

    7. And Jutis
