Onion (pyaj) 2 medium (sliced)
Mustard oil 1 tbsp
Green chilli 2-3 nos (slit)

1. Heat oil in a nonstick kadai, add green chillies and fry.
2. Add parwal and saute for 2-3 minutes, on medium heat.
3. Add onion, salt and turmeric powder, mix and saute for another 2-3 minutes.
4. Lower the heat, cover and cook till done and surface of parwal is lightly browned. Keep
    stirring lightly during this period, intermittently, taking care not to mash up the bhujia.
5. Remove from heat and serve hot with paratha, roti or even rice.

Notes & Tips

1. Make a well in the centre of the kadai by shoving the bhujia away. The excess oil will collect in this well, which can be discarded.
