Baingan, saim ke beej aur mooli ki sabzi

Baingan, Saim ke beej aur Mooli ki sabji (mix vegetable of brinjal, seeds of flattened beans and radish) might sound a little different combo of veggies but trust me, this combo rocks! Baingan, Saim ke beej aur Mooli ki sabzi is completely my mother’s invention. Whenever we used to get bored during winters, she used to prepare this three mixed vegetables combo.

The best part was that all three vegetables used to be from our kitchen garden. Whenever we used to pluck beans from the vines, there were always some extra beans which had big ripened seeds. These beans couldn’t be used for normal Flattened beans with potatoesย  sabzi – so my mother used the bean seeds with radish and brinjal and an excellentย  mixed sabzi was invented!

Though this sabzi can be prepared without onions too, but If you are not against using onions then I would strongly suggest you to add them. Onions enhance the flavour significantly!

Baingan, Saim ke Beej aur Mooli ki sabzi

Ingredients:

Seeds of flattened beans 100 gms
Brinjal (small size) 4
Radish (medium size) 2
Green chilies, chopped 3-4
Onion (big size) 1
Oil 5 tbsp
Small mustard seeds (rai) 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds (jeera) 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida (hing) , a pinch
Coriander powder 2 tbsp
Red chili powder 1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Water 4 tbsp

Process:

Take out the seeds from ripened flattened beans. Peel and cut radish into small pieces and wash both of them.

Saim ke beej

Saim ke beej aur mooli

Chop onion and roast it in a wok with 1 tbsp oil till they are brown in colour. Keep them separate.

Heat 4 tbsp oil in the wok and crackle hing, rai and jeera. Add seeds of flattened beans, radish and chopped brinjals. Always cut brinjal just before adding in the wok. if we cut brinjal beforehand with other vegetables, they start turning black and their taste changes.

Add rest of the spices along with chopped green chilies followed by two tbsp water.

Mix everything well, cover the pan and let the sabzi cook on sim heat till all three veggies turn soft.

In between, keep turning them upside-down for even cooking and if you feel that sabzi is sticking to the bottom, add 2 tbsp more water and cover it.

Baingan, saim ke beej aur Mooli ki sabzi is ready!

When sabzi is cooked completely, add roasted onions and serve with roti, parathe or as a side dish to rice.

    1. Thanks a bunch Radhika ๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜บ๏ธ
      When we used to pull out carrots and radishes, it used to be a challenge to take out them without breaking in one piece. It was so much fun and clean pesticide free vegetables!!

  1. A wonderful way to honour your mum by sharing this. Baingan, Saim ke beej aur Mooli ki sabji sounds yum and perfect for the colder months rolling in!

    1. Caz, thank you so much for your kind wordsโ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿค—
      Yes, winter brings vegetables in abundance and we can mix them as per our taste buds ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Intriguing combo! We love saim ke beej. My mother used to let many of the beans ripen on the vine, and then store them in tins. Soak overnight and use in sambaar, subzis and even just boiled and salted.
    Bachpan ki yaadein taaza kar di aapne, Deeksha! โค

    1. Jaya, thank you very much ๐Ÿค—
      Bachpan ki to baat hi niraali thee. Aapne aur hamne jo khel khele hai, apne bachho ne to unke naam bhee nahi sune hoge๐Ÿ˜‡

      I loved your mom’s idea of preparing them only as salted. We can preserve them and later can be added in any dish.

  3. Sounds interesting indeed. Not a combination I would have thought off, but that makes it more interesting. I hope we will soon be able to buy radishes, they are seasonal here. I love them, strong in taste, surely good together with the eggplant and beans.
    I may have found a source for green chilis, yay!

    1. That’s wonderful, yayyy!!
      Yes, combo is unusual, but during winter veggies are in abundance so we can always try to mix our choice of vegetables. Some people (like my husband) don’t have taste for flattened beans seeds so only radish and brinjal together tastes very nice. Be little bold with green chillies and it tastes wonderful.

  4. You have to be fair and the truth is that just by looking at the photo, this sabzi looks exquisite. Surely after trying it, we are going to bless your mother for having bequeathed the recipe to you.
    The step by step of the recipe is great not to fail.
    This weekend I’m going to have great fun in the kitchen. I have already set aside the bottle of wine for when I am preparing it.
    That they are well at home
    A big hug.

    1. Many many thanks Mac for your kind words โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ
      Kitchen is always fun if we are in good frame of mind to create dishes and a wonderful drink to accompany the meal.
      Stay safe, healthy and enjoy Sunday.

  5. I love this recipe.. Deeksha. Iโ€™m not a fan of vegetables..( I guess no teen is๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ ) but this recipe, oh Iโ€™m gonna try it! Can I ask you for a favour to post some recipes on Indian classic sweets. Like something special for Diwali. I m planning ahead to think and make a thaali for everyone on that special day…โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ

  6. An interesting and very flavorful sounding dish. Asafoetida is a spice not native to our area, but it can be ordered online. I vividly remember the first time I was around raw Asafoetida. It was during my first trip to India some years ago It doesn’t smell so good before it goes into the oil as I recall. Great tutorial…
