Veg Palya for Sandwich/Paratha - Mixed Veg Stuffing

Sandwich is a staple in our house. My daughter loves them and I love them too. I can stuff any kind of vegetable and she wouldn’t even notice..  

I generally make mixed vegetable palya with potato, carrot, beans and peas. Nothing fancy just regular potato palya with added vegetables...
Then I came across this mix veg paratha at Indian Stores which had crushed vegetables in them; which gave me an idea to crush the frozen mixed vegetables, instead of cutting all the vegetables from scratch. 

I got an easy and a better tasting Playa. 

I coarsely ground frozen vegetables. And when they are ground together the individual taste of each vegetable is blended together to give an unique taste in every bite. 

This stuffing could be used for Parathas as well... you can make cutlets.. or tikkis.. or mix veg bonda.. basically anything which requires stuffing..

Do try!

Beetroot Pulav

My cousin Archana is an avid follower of the blog “Monsoon Spice”. If I have to try anything from that blog, I simply ask her if she has tried it before, and she’ll give me all details as to what she tried, how it was, what she did differently.. etc :)
So recently when I asked her if she tried anything new, she told me about this Beetroot Pulav from the same blog, and said it came out good. 

So I also tried .. Beetroot gives this bath mild sweetness and nice pink hue(or red hue depending upon the quantity of the Beetroot you put). I really loved it. 

This is a very good item to take to potlucks and a good option for your lunch box.  It tastes even better the next day. 

Do make it and impress your family and friends!
