Pyaaz Kali - Reposting with Video

I have been neglecting this blog. I just launched a film blog and that has been taking up most of my time. What is encouraging is that although I have not been able to regularly update this blog, the statistics show that it does not matter to the visitors to this blog. There are some posts which get a continuous stream of visitors one of them is the Pyaaz Kali post. This was cooked by my mother, I used to then just note down the recipe.The very purpose of this blog was to have a record of all her dishes but alas, I could barely cover less than one-fourth of her dishes before she suddenly passed away.

I have been trying to cook some of her dishes and since this is the season for pyaaz kali I did try it out. It turned out fine so I thought of making a video of it. It looks a little different from Ma's pyaaz kali, I was experimenting a bit by using small  quantities of spices, you may add more, in accordance to your taste. It does not really matter if you use small quantities of spices for the simple reason that this vegetable itself has a wonderful flavour of its own.

Check out the video and for the detailed recipe you have to back to mum's  pyaaz kali


  1. Guess what, Shilpi - I actually saw pyaaz kali at our neighbourhood sabziwaala. So I will buy some one of these days and make this!

    1. Madhu just go ahead and experiment you can add more spices but try it out with prawns, it tastes wonderful. My problem was when I got the prawns I did not get the pyaaz kali and when I got the pyaaz kali I did not get the prawns, so I had to make do with the potatoes. It tastes best with sweet water prawns and tiger prawns. Let me know how it turns out.

  2. I will! Sounds delicious. I love prawns added to vegetables, so this should be wonderful.
