Bharela Kanda batata nu shaak is made frequently in the Gujarati household. It is served alongwith masala khichdi and khadhi and is a fixed Sunday menu for most Gujaratis.

Pick very small size onion and baby potatoes to make the recipe. If you do not find baby potato you can cut the big potato into 4 parts and use. Here in Sydney we get small French onions or spanish pickle onion. I have used Small French onion for the recipe.

The small onion are very tender and have sweet taste. So always use the small onion for the recipe.

My mother in law (Geeta Shah) and father in law (Chetan Shah) have come from India to visit us. Our mind and soul are relaxed and we feel secure when we have elders at home. Aarav (my son) enjoys their company. And most important we all get to eat the delicious traditional recipes cooked by my mother in law.

Khichdi is mostly made in most Gujarati household on Sundays. It is considered one of the healthy meal by WHO. Khichdi is accompanied with Gujarati kadhi or chaas, pickle, papad, kanda batata nu shaak or ringan batata nu shaak or bharela kanda batata nu shaak.

My mother in law spotted these small onions when we went for the grocery shopping. She wanted to make this bharela kanda batata nu shaak for us with khichdi. I learnt from her this recipe and so thought of sharing with you all. It is very easy to cook recipe and very delicious in taste.

So friends I enjoyed this traditional recipe to the fullest. Hope you all make it and enjoy with your loved ones.
