Carrot peas potato bhaji ingredients

Ingredients I Used

  • Carrots: For the recipe, you can use either full-size or baby carrots. Simply chop them into bite-sized pieces as well.
  • Peas: The recipe calls for 1/2 cup of fresh or frozen green peas.
  • Potatoes: Any potato can be used in the recipe. Simply remove the skin and chop them into bite-sized pieces.
  • Onions: Whatever type of onion you have on hand, white or yellow, will do the work.
  • Tomato: Brings carrots and peas’ sweetness into balance.
  • Salt: Adding salt to the bhaji helps bring the flavors together and complete the dish.
  • Curry powder: Another important ingredient of Indian bhaji.
  • Smoked paprika: Paprika has a spicy, sweet flavor. It’s a fantastic method to give your food a little smokiness and heat.
  • Coriander powder: The flavor of ground coriander seeds, also called coriander powder, is fragrant, sweet, and somewhat lemony.
  • Dried fenugreek leaves: Without the delicious fragrant flavor that the dried fenugreek leaves bring, this bhaji would be incomplete.
  • Bay leaf: Aromatic spice, a staple for pulao and bhaji.
  • Button red chilies: A staple in dry spice tempering, adds a kick of heat and aroma to the dish!
  • Avocado oil: You can use any kind of cooking oil, even though I often recommend using avocado oil when cooking. Making delicious and healthy recipes is made easy using avocado oil. It is abundant in vitamins, vital fatty acids, minerals, and antioxidants.

How To Store Leftovers?

Let the carrot peas potato bhaji cool until it reaches room temperature. After that, put it in an airtight container. For 3-5 days, keep in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to eat it again, put it in a dish that can go in the microwave and heat it until it’s hot all the way through.

Pro Tips

  • Cut the vegetables into uniformly sized pieces. The vegetables will cook equally in this manner.
  • To give the sabzi a tangy flavor, add amchur powder.
  • Throughout cooking, whisk the ingredients often, such as every 3 to 4 minutes. Moreover, if you continue to stir the vegetables in the middle, they will not burn.
  • If you don’t have fresh green peas or red carrots, you can still use frozen peas and orange carrots. The carrots have to be moist and soft.
  • Typically, I use avocado oil to prepare this dish. Any other oil with a neutral flavor can be used.
  • You may easily increase the serving size of this carrot peas potato recipe.
  • Use a pan with a heavy bottom to make this dish, and don’t add any water. Or use as little addition as possible. It tastes the finest when vegetables are cooked in their natural moisture.
  • Vegetables shouldn’t be overcooked or they will get mushy and taste bad.
  • Powdered spices should always be mixed with a little water because they burn very easily.
  • By including additional veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, or French beans, you can create a dish that is comparable to it.
