Tips to make best Kathal ki Sabji
This recipe requires a lot of oil. If kathal is not fried properly, it will taste raw. So do not skip on it.
Choose the kathal which have lot’s of fibers. The one which is dense from inside will not taste good.
Fry the onions until nicely browned and on medium low heat. They will brown evenly tis way making the sabji delicious.
Always apply lots of oil on your hands and knife before cutting the kathal. It releases some liquid which is very sticky and very difficult to remove if the hands and utensils are not oiled well.
If kathal is too dense and doesn’t cooked by frying and cooking, then add ½ cup of water and cover and cook until done.
