ChorChori | Bengali Style Mixed Vegetable Medley

Hi Supermoms,

Bengali Cuisine is so flavourful and you must have guessed  that I am already in love with it. I have been trying various Bengali recipes recently and this recipe is a keeper. It is so delicious and wholesome. A versatile dish - ' Chorchori'  loaded with flavours of whole spices , you can serve this mixed vegetable sabzi as a side to rotis or rice. 

'Charchori' or 'Chorchori ' means a mishmash  of vegetables. The vegetables are fried over a wide pan and they char and give out a sizzling sound and hence the name ‘ Chorchori’. Traditionally the Panchmishali Charchari meaning the five vegetable medley is most popular and is made using yellow pumpkin, ridge gourd, brinjal, broad beans  and potatoes.
