        Makar Sankranti is around the corner, and I am sure you are busy in preparation for Bhogi and Sankranti festival. So here is one of the traditional recipes of mix vegetable curry (Bhogichi Rassa Bhaji). This year give this mix veg curry a try and treat your family and friends with this tasty curry.
Video Recipe:

This vegetarian curry is a great winter warmer and tastes heavenly with sesame seeds-Bajra roti(Tilachi Bhakri). Add the veggies with your favorites, or whatever you have on hand. But keep in mind that harder veggies may take a bit longer to cook, while softer veggies will cook up more quickly. Leftovers of this dish stay great! Store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. And reheat in the microwave or a saucepan on the stove. Add some water if it gets too thick!

         So, here is my simple and easy recipe for whipping them up with plain rice, hot, puffed up, and crispy bhakri. When you are ready to eat, just reheat and garnish with freshly chopped coriander, and you're ready to go!
