Methi Bhaji

Making any kind of sabzi seems like a huge task for me because my biggest fear is to make sure it gets cooked before it rots away as they usually have so little shelf-life. And I have wasted many different delicate vegetables just because I don't get around to cooking it within due time. Cutting the vegetables and cleaning them is whole different story. But recently, something magical happened! I was at Bombay Bazaar and while looking for something in the freezer, I found washed, cleaned, cut and ready to cook frozen veggies by the company Deep. I got all excited and grabbed the Bhindi (Okra) and Methi bhaji to get a head start. I was pleasantly surprised how fresh the frozen sabzi tasted.(!?!)

1 pckg Methi bhaji 12oz
1 large Onion
1 medium sized potato 
4 tbsp diced tomatoes
1/2 cup peas
2 large eggs
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Red Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Haldi
1 tsp Zeera powder
1 tsp Dhaniya powder

Cut the onions into thin slices and do the same with potatoes.

In oil, add the onions and cook until soft.

Wait until it gets translucent and caramelized at the edges.

Add all the spices.

Mix well and add the tomatoes.

keep stirring until everything is well braised.

Add the sliced potatoes and give it another stir.

Cook until the potatoes get a little tender. Add the methi bhaji cubes to the pot.

Close the lid for a few minutes to let the sabzi loosen up. Mix it well.

Now add the beaten eggs and give it a good stir.

Cover the pot and cook for a few minutes. Serve with your choice of bread.
