Mixed veg with palak(palang saker chorchori)..Winter Special

   A mixed veg with spinach leaves,is what I am about to share today.This is a winter special recipe,as it includes all the vegetables available in winter.It is a very mildly spiced recipe ,and the unique thing in this recipe is that all the vegetables retain their own distinctive flavour and taste.A mixed veg is referred to as a chorchori in Bengali ,hence the name palang saker chorchori.

The flavours of this recipe is best enjoyed in winters.This preparation can be easily converted to a no onion garlic dish,as the garlic used here is optional.There is a use of badi in this post ,which is easily available in supermarkets these days.For those who are new to badi,I would like to explain that they are sun dried dumplings made out of generally urad dal.They add flavour to this preparation.
