Shalgum Ki Sookhi Sabji (Turnip Curry)

This recipe is really easy and turns out a delicious dish that tastes great when served with hot Khasta Paratha.



  • Heat 3-4 tbsp of oil in a wide, preferably non stick frying pan over medium flame.
  • When hot, add onions, and salt. Sauté till onions are light brown. Add ginger garlic and fry for a minute.
  • Now put in turnip slices; and red chili powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and salt. Stir and sauté for a minute. Don't let it burn. Add 2 tbsp water, if it starts to burn. Turnip pieces should be nicely coated.
  • Add about ¼ cup of water. Cover and cook on low heat till turnips are done, stirring occasionally. Add more water if needed; you want dish to be damp wet but not runny.
  • Stir in amchur powder and garam masala. Cook for a minute more.
  • Take out in a dish, garnish with spring onion leaves and serve with hot paratha.
