BM #128 Week 2 Day 2 - 

Today's recipe is from the state of Rajasthan. I have tried different version of papad ki sabji and this is the very basic of them all. I will definitely post another version of this tasty and simple sabji very soon. 

This works well with rice and specially when you run out of vegetables. Since it comes from the desert state, the ingredients are all  pantry staples and can be whipped up in a jiffy.

Here is the Rajasthani Thali I had posted a while back.  

Here in the Rajasthani thali we have 1.Lahsun ki Chutney, 2.Boondi - Kakdi Raitha, 3.Gatte Ki Sabji, 4.Kala Chane Ki Kadhi, 5. Sabz Jaipuri, 6.Papad Ki Sabji, 7.Dal Tadka, 8.Rice, 9.Poori, 10.Phulka, 11.Tawa Pudi, 12.Chaas, 13.Moong dal Vada, 14.Churma Laddu, 15. Onion-Tomato Salad.
