valor papdi nu shaak recipe

this val papdi shaak has a sweet and sour taste. with flat beans i make a few recipes. this gujarati shaak is one such recipe. i have also shared a simple papdi bhaji recipe earlier.

to make the papdi shaak, i use the same masala that is used in undhiyu. i also add some potatoes or brinjals in it. when i made for blog, i did not have brinjals so skipped them. either potatoes or brinjals alone can be added or both together can also be added. you can even skip potatoes and brinjals if you want. onion are not added in the recipe. you can add them if you want.

to make this shaak, you can even use surti papdi. this shaak is best served with phulkas or bajra rotis or jowar rotis. you can also serve it as a side dish with gujarati dal and rice.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. Should the sesame seeds be roasted before adding?

    • welcome asha. sesame seeds are not roasted. when cooking the veggies, the sesame seeds also get cooked.
