Method for Gathiya nu shaak / Sev Ki sabzi

5) So in a kadai add 11/2 tbsp of oil and once hot add the hing followed by the kashmiri red chilli powder and then add 2 cups of hot water.

6)While we wait for the water to come to a boil add the rest of the maslas, so start with the turmeric powder which is haldi, followed by the Coriander Cumin powder / Dhania Jeera powder, salt and now mix everything in.

7) once the gravy comes to a boil take the gathiya dough in your hands and place it on top of the holed spatula and then start pressing it using out fingers or using our palms. This is a bit of an exercise so be patient.

8)Also guys if the dough is too tough and not going through the holes then just add 1 or 2 tsp of water to make it a bit lose.

9)Once you have all of the dough run though the holed spatula then cook for the next 6-7 minutes on medium flame

10)After 7 minutes the sabji is ready so serve. And don’t worry if you think that the gravy is watery as it will thicken as soon as the veggie cools down a bit.

You can have this with roti or bhakri or rotla.
