  • If you want to avoid boiling it, then you can directly add the chopped vegetables at step 5 and cook till done (dry up the water completely). Tastes great both ways.
  • Traditionally mustard oil is used in preparing this dish, but you may use any vegetable oil of your choice.
  • You may adjust the quantity of root and leaves according to your preference and availability. This dish can be made just with the root, if the greens aren't available.
