We will wash & soak Bajra or pearl millet for 3-4 hours.Then Pressure cook it for 2 whistles.They will not turn out to very mushy in texture but pearls will be soft .So we need to drain out water through a strainer.And keep it aside. To check complete process please follow our video recipe.
First we will take a pan add ghee and fry peanuts and cashews till light golden brown.And keep them aside.
In the same pan add asafoetida, mustard seeds, crushed black pepper and cloves, Bayleaf, Whole red chilli, curry leaves , Green chillies and then add sliced onion and cook till light brown.
Add tomatoes fry for couple of minutes then add green peas, sweetcorn, sliced potato,French beans and sprinkle some salt. Mix it well and cover it for 3-4 minutes.
When these vegetables are soft enough then uncover it and add tricolour capsicums.Sprinkle some salt and cover it for two minutes only because we want capsicums bit crunchy.
Now uncovered the pan mix it well & add red chilli powder, turmeric, salt and coriander powder with just a dash of water. After two minutes add Bajra, which is strained earlier. Mix it well now add lemon juice and coriander leaves.
Mix it well and serve it hot garnished with peanuts and cashew. Enjoyyyy
