Notes

NOTE-
1- You can directly add the chopped vegetables(with out boiling ) at step 5 and cook on low heat till done (dry up the water completely). Tastes great both ways.
2-Traditionally mustard oil is used in preparing this dish, but you may use any vegetable oil of your choice.
3-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.
