Gujrati 'Undhiyu'

 The last time we were in Chicago, we had been to the BAPS Swaminarayan temple.The temple is so beautiful and peaceful..I love it there!Another attraction..is their cafeteria..Shayona. It has some super delicious Gujrati Food!
I had picked up 'Methi Muthiya' pack and wanted to try the famous Gujrati speciality "Undhiyu". Since it needs quite a few 'special' vegetables I had to wait a couple week to gather those...but finally...This Delicious meal came to our plates!!
Love how the sweetness from the root vegetables combine with the savory masala ! Truly mouthwatering!I served it along with 'Multigrain wraps'....which are thicker and kind of resemble Roti/ Bhakri.

Vegetables: Papdi, eggplant, sweet potato, potato is a must! Raw banana can be added too.
I used: 1/2 cup each Papdi, Purple yam (Indian sweet potato), Eggplant(whole baby eggplants can be used), Potatoes, Green harbara, carrots cut up in bite size chunks.
10-12 Methu Muthiya ( I used store bought.But can be made at home-http://www.tarladalal.com/Oondhiya-%28-Gujarati-Recipe%29-602r )

1/2 cup shredded coconut dry
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro

1tsp Cumin-Coriander powder
1tsp Jaggery
1/2tsp Red chili powder
1/2tsp Turmeric
1/2tsp Cumin
2-3 green chilies
 Cilantro for garnish

1) Mix together the coconut, sesame powder, chopped cilantro, cumin-coriander powder,Ginger paste lemon juice, red chili powder, turmeric,salt. Rub/ stuff this masala in the vegetables.
2)Heat up oil in pan. Add the cumin seeds, green chilies. Add the vegetables with the coconut-cilantro masala.
