Sata bhajiyun-seven vegetable curry is another way of making a great mixed vegetable curry.Probably you can say this Sindhi curry is counterpart of Gujarati ‘Undhiyu’.
We cook small amounts of variety of vegetables in a spinach based gravy.It is also a way to utilize small left over veggies in a spinach based gravy.First of all,this curry makes use of winter vegetables which mother nature welcomes with time.
There is a change of season, when autumn ends and winter appears and thus the vegetables change in market.Sata means seven while Bhajiyun meaning vegetables.
This curry is especially made on the day of ‘Laxmi Pujan‘ at Diwali and also kept in Naivedyam.
Probably, the only prasad which is not sweet but a curry.
However, you may not wait till Diwali for making this curry.You can relish this with fried flat bread –Poori, anytime for brunch.
