undhiyoo recipe

Surti undhiyoo/undhiyu is a very popular mixed vegetable dish prepared by the Gujarati's  mostly in Winters .Undhiyoo is a delicious preparation of many veggies available during winters .Undhiyoo/Surti Undhiyu is a rich and delicious dish which is served with puri or phulkas .The veggies are stuffed with flavourful masala and cooked over low flame.Traditionally its cooked in earthern pots sealed and placed upside down in fire pit dug in ground .But these days it can be cooked easily in thick bottomed vessels over low flame or in pressure cooker to fasten the process.
Undhiyoo has 2 versions  Kathiyawadi and Surti Undhiyoo ,the one I am sharing and i always make is Surti Undhiyoo ,where the masala is stuffed in the vegetables and then slow cooked .Both Kathiyawadi and Surti undhiyoo taste equally delicious but somehow I always prefered surti undhiyoo.
Making undhiyoo is easy though the process is lengthy its totally worth it.With prior prep making undhiyoo gets easier .Undhiyoo is best served with hot pooris and chilled shrikhand .Do give this amazing dish a try before the winter veggies needed to make this vanishes from the market.
