Tawa Sabzi Version 2

BM # 47  Week 1  Day 2

After the Ragda Pattice as a starter for Day 2 I have chosen to cook Tawa Sabzi from Puranmal's menu. This is from the main course. Tawa sabzi is one of my signature dishes and I love to serve it for parties.I have already posted a Tawa sabzi before, but this time I have made many variations. I served this for our Diwali dinner. Since we served the dinner in the lawns and it was low lighting I could not click the way I had assembled it. I had assembled the veggies around the Tawa and kept the gravy on side. The guest gave their preference of vegetable, which was then sautéed with the gravy and a little butter. 

This time I used stuffed chillies and corn and potato stuffed gourds. These were my new veggies and the most sought after. The guest loved the Tawa sabzi which was a complete treat , specially since it was a live counter.
