Panchmishali torkari/Mixed vegetable||Very healthy and tasty|| Goes great with roti,paratha,naan or tortillas

It is mainly from the Bengali Cuisine,but it has all it’s different versions of taste.

‘Panchmishali torkari’, “panch” means five “mishali” means mix and torkari means curry ,so it’s a dry curry made of five vegetables. Like here we used,

1) Beetroot

2) Potato

3) Carrots

4) Cauliflower

5) Cabbage

As a bonus we had some fresh beetroot greens,so we used that also👍.

All the above vegetables are very good for your health. Don’t worry,about the kids….that seeing vegetables they will run away from the table. They will just love it and even will want you to make it more.
