Although the Sai Bhaji features a combination of greens, the slightly sour taste of khatta bhaji is the highlight of this recipe. It contrasts beautifully with the other vegetables and chana dal, which help to accentuate the flavour of the khatta bhaji and balance it at the same time. Perked up with minimal spice powders and pastes, this tasty Sai Bhaji makes a wonderful side-dish for any Rotis .
