Tawa Sabji

Mix veg tava sabji recipe with step by step pictures: Mix vegetables such as bitter gourd, colocasia, round gourd, lady finger, potatoes, chilies, onions, brinjals, etc.; fried and thereafter cooked in a base of tomatoes and spices, and the whole affair of adding and cooking the fried vegetables to the tomato base when done on a large skillet (tava), it is called tawa sabji. Tava sabji used to be a very popular preparation at the Indian wedding. There would always be a counter for tawa sabji. However, it is so simple to make it at home too. The best part is that you can use any vegetables which you like. You can make tava sabji on the day of your refrigerator cleaning with whatever you have handy and left. Further, you can also add paneer along with the vegetables. Tava sabji recipe is very simple and easy to make. The base does not call for too many ingredients. The recipe doesn’t call for any tawa masala too. With the spices easily available in your pantry, this dish can be prepared. It can be served with chapati or paratha. However, I love to serve it with some lachha paratha.

Ingredients for Tawa Sabji

Vegetables: I have used bitter gourd, round gourd, colocasia, ladyfinger, potato, chilies, onions, baby brinjals to make the tava sabji. You can also use baby corn, mushrooms etc. Further paneer can also be added, although, then the name tawa sabji won’t be justified much. I have deep fried the vegetables to cook the same. For a healthier version, you can blanch these followed by stir-frying the same.

Tomatoes: These form the base for tawa sabji recipe. You can also use tomato puree or simply puree the tomatoes in a mixer.

Spices: The very basic, red chili powder (regular as well as Kashmiri), coriander powder, turmeric powder, dry fenugreek leaves powder, roasted cumin seeds powder has been used.

Garnish: The tawa sabji should be garnished with some chopped coriander leaves.

You can also make mix veg (halwai style), pav bhaji, veg manchurian, veg fried rice, etc. And it is ok if you do not want to make any of these dishes.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
