Navratri, a festival filled with joy, happiness, positivity is all here! It’s the time when we fast for 9 days, pray to god, play garba-dandia.. Talking about the fast, people follow different rituals for it, Some eat food once a day, some eat only falhari food once a day, some eat food with no salt, some with only sendha/rock salt, some eat only fruits, some only drink water or milk, some eat only satvik food.. Many other rituals are there, all families follow different things but what brings them together is the God & the energy & positivity  God gives us while fasting!

My family follows to eat Satvik Food Once a day in the festival. So, today is the Day 1 of the Nine Day Festival, and here’s the Satvik thali I made for today 🙂

  3. Smear Green Chutney in one of the bread(butter side down, then sliced boiled potato, and juliennes of bell pepper. Sprinkle salt and generous amount of chat masala. Then grate some cheese.
  4. Then spread tomato ketchup in one side and gr chutney in the other side over the buttered bread. Keep the bread over the cheese, then place sliced tomato and cucumber.

Notes
Instead of Tomato Ketchup, tamarind chutney can be used OR a mix of coriander chutney, tamarind chutney and tomato ketchup! 🙂
Instead of cheese cubes, cheese slices can be used and its more awesome. I was out of cheese slices that day, so used cubes! 🙂
Green Chutney : Take One bunch of coriander and ½ bunch of mint, 1 Tsp Lemon Juice, ¼ tsp salt, ½ tsp black salt, ½ tsp cumin seeds, ¼ tsp sugar, 1 or 2 green chili. Using minimal amount of water, make a thick paste. Transfer to a bowl, and add almost the same amount of smooth yogurt and whisk. Use as desired.

Cabbage Sambharo Recipe | Fafda Condiments | Gujarati Cuisine

Hie! Now, I bring delectable food every Wednesday and Saturday, Just for you!

Gujarati Food is everywhere, and we love it too, isn’t it? We adore fafdas and papaya sambharo.. I use to always think what was that yellow thing served with fafdas, its so delicious.. Finally came to know it is Raw Papaya Salad or Sambharo.. Then, my experiments and got the perfect result.. But raw papaya’s aren’t available all the time right? So, cabbage is the substitute.. Oh yes, Fafda is a fried snack made with besan or chickpea flour..

2

Cabbage. Yes, not everyone likes it.. But this preparation is sweet, sour, spicy, crunchy.. Its going to be adored for sure! I can eat this as it is, but this goes to next level when had with fafdas.. So, lets make..

[widget id=”text-5″]
Cabbage Sambharo - Gujju Food Condiments
 
Ingredients
  • Cabbage - 2 Cups {Chopped]
  • Carrot - ½ Cup {Grated]
  • Curry Leaves - 5-6
  • Gr Chili - 2-3 {Chopped]
  • Turmeric - ½ Tsp
  • Mustard - 1 Tsp
  • Sugar - 1 Tsp
  • Salt - To Taste
  • Lemon Juice - 1 Tbsp {Appx.}
  • Oil - 1½ Tbsp
Instructions
  1. Heat up the oil, temper the mustard. Once crackles, add in the chili and curry leaves.
  2. Lower the flame to the lowest or switch off the flame. Proceed by adding the turmeric, cabbage, salt, sugar, lemon juice. Basically everything.
  3. Stir around nicely and serve!
Notes
Do not cook this, If it cooks even a little bit. the cabbage will leave the moisture and will turn soggy/soft. We want the crunchiness from it.. I prefer to switch off the flame right after i add the cabbage..

I can eat all that in a couple of seconds.. Its phenomenal! Be sure to try it
