Khira santula
















Cooking Time Required: 15-20 mins
Cost of preparation: 40-50 rupees

Ingredients: Raw papaya pieces ( 2 cups), pumpkin pieces ( 1 cup ), lau/lauki pieces( 2 cups ), janhi ( ridge gourd, 1 cup ), potato pieces( 1 cup ), red chillis ( 2-3 nos), onion ( 1 small), pancha phutana ( 1/2 tsp ), turmeric, salt, khira/milk ( 1/2 cup ), jeera-lanka (cumin-chilli ) powder ( 1/5 tsp ), oil ( 1 tsp ).

Preparation: Cut the onion in small pieces .

Cooking: Heat a wok .Add 1 cup of water along with the vegetables, turmeric and salt. Close the lid and cook till all the vegetables soften.

Add the milk and cook for 2 mins.

Heat the oil in a pan. Add the pancha phutana and red chillis. When the seeds start spluttering, add the onion pieces. Fry till the onion turns translucent.

Pour over the boiled vegetables. Sprinkle cumin chilli powder. Mix well.
Remove from fire after 30 secs.

Delicious and healthy santula is ready to eat. Serve with rotis.


Note: One can also add vegetables like sweet potato/ brinjal/ parwal/raw banana according to ones taste. Using ghee instead of oil adds a lovely aroma to the santula. On osa bara or vrat days this recipe is made without adding the onions.

The milk maybe skipped if one is lactose intolerant.
