Sindhi saag (sai bhaaji)

   Sai meaning green and bhajji meaning vegetables, this sindhi dish has an great fusion of vegetables along with greens.  This is quite addictive and ever since I made them, my husband, who is an fussy eater, demands them atleast once an week   :)  And, yes who wont resist such an delecious bhajji with an healthy pack of ingredients?  :)

I tried this bhajji many times, and altered the composition of dal to vegetable ratio.  I found the below one to be quick and easy.  Traditionally these bhajji is served with rice, though they make an excellant combo with roti/paratha/dosa etc.  And, yes, there is not limits or constraints on the vegetables added, you can go ahead and experiment with your own stocked up vegetables, because this bhajji will never disappoint you :P

By making this saag, you are sure to save-in a lot of time and at the same time, they never compromise you on taste.  And yes, they are sure to earn you a lot of praise too :)  So, try and benefit yourselves :)
