undhiyu recipe | Surti undhiyu | Oondhiya | authentic Gujarati undhiyu | with 60 amazing images. Oondhiya is a classic Gujarati vegetable from the city of Surat and hence also called Surti undhiyu. Oondhiya is a preparation of vegetables and fenugreek muthias cooked in an aromatic blend of spices. A traditional undhiyu recipe requires hours on end to make. Here, we have presented a faster version using a pressure cooker that also uses less oil. Undhiyu is a one pot vegetable dish that is the hallmark of Gujarati vegetarian cuisine. Generally preparing undhiyu takes a lot of time and needs patience. Traditionally the veggies are cooked or fried in batches. There are usually three versions of Undhiyu, matla undhiyu, Kathiyawadi undhiyu and the version we have made which is surti undhiyu. As this undhiyu is cooked in pressure cooker, this recipe doesn’t take much time. The name “Undhiyu” is derived from the Gujarati word “undhu” which means upside down. Tradionally undhiyu is cooked in an earthen pot called matti nu matlu in gujju. The pots are sealed and placed upside down in a fire pit dug in the ground. the slow cooking in the earthen pot gives the dish a rustic flavor and taste. This method of making undhiyu is still used in my village, the flavor and aroma is distinctive. Undhiyu is specially made in winter as some veggies used for making are only available in winter. My mother would make undhiyu for special occasions and also family get-togethers along with poori’s and aamras. Being a Gujarati I grew up with Undhiyu as special dish for which we has to wait all year long until the winters started and we would still just get to enjoy this vegetable for 2-3 months, but now-a-days everything is easily available. Every Gujarati household makes Undhiyu for Sunday lunch or festival like Uttarayan when the vegetables are in season. The dish is a seasonal one, comprising the vegetables that are available during the winter, including green beans or new peas, small eggplants, muthia (dumplings/fritters made with fenugreek leaves, potatoes, and purple yam, yam. You can also add green peas if you wish to. Ingredients of undhiyu are now available all year but are very expensive in the off season and the quality of the vegetables are not very good. To save on time further, you can buy readymade dry muthias. However, ensure you add them along with the vegetables so that they turn soft on cooking. Ummmmm… I am reminded of Jalabi, Puri and oondhiya… trust me, that is the perfect combination to win a Gujarati's heart!

Plain bajra rotis or rotlas are crushed lightly with hand (to which ghee and chopped jaggery are added) are eaten during dinner. These bajra rotis can also be eaten for breakfast with hot or cold milk. To perk up their flavour, I have added mashed potatoes, chopped onions and freshly grated coconut to make bajra aloo paratha. I am sure you will enjoy these delicious bajra aloo rotis as they are packed with nutrition and provide energy and protein. Let’s try giving an exciting twist to the traditional bajra rotis and rotlas of Gujarati fame. Adding some mashed potatoes to the dough makes the bajra aloo paratha soft and pleasant to the palate. To make bajra aloo roti, combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough using enough water. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions. Roll out a portion of the dough into a 150 mm. (6") diameter circle using a little bajra flour for rolling. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook the roti on a medium flame, using a little ghee, till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make 11 more rotis. Serve immediately with a pickle of your choice. While amchur, coriander and green chilli paste impart a welcome peppiness. Moreover, the use of garam masala in potato bajra paratha adds a complete Indian touch. Coconut and onions not just enhance the texture but the flavour of the rotis too. While this masala bajra roti is actually easy to prepare, you just need to take care of one thing – go easy when rolling as too much pressure can result in cracks, especially along the edges of the roti.

Ensure that onions are finely chopped, to make rolling easier. 2. The dough should be soft. If it is hard, the rotis will break while rolling. 3. If you feel that rolling is difficult, then try rolling them between 2 sheets of plastic with enough bajra flour for rolling.
