MARRIRAY JO SAAG – TIKHO / BHAJI KARELO
(Green Amarnath Vegetable – Spicy)
Marriro Bhaji – 1 medium sized bunch
Split green gram lentil – ½ cup
Green Chillies – 4 nos.
Ghee – ½ tblsp.
Asafoetida – pinch
Dried Raw Mango – 3 pieces or 1 tblsp. Lime Juice
Salt – to taste
Soak the split green gram in water for 1 hour prior to the cooking.
Break the marriro leaves from its stem with your hand. Marriro should never be cut with the knife. Wash the leaves thoroughly.
In a kadai, heat ghee on a medium flame. When hot and the ghee has melted, add chopped green chillies and asafoetida. Allow it to temper.
When the green chillies start popping, add the soaked split green gram lentil. Roast for a few minutes.
Add the cut marriro vegetable and dried raw mango pieces (if they are being used). Add ½ a cup of water. Cover the kadai with a lid and let it cook.
When the vegetable is cooked and the lentil is tender, mash the mixture slightly without making it a puree. Add salt and lime juice (in case if the dried raw mango has not been added) and mix well.
Cook for a few more minutes and serve hot.
