Onion Tomato Sabji (Bhaaji)

This is a typical Maharashtrian Bhaaji (Vegetable) which you can have with Chapati (Phulka), Bread or with Rice if you want. It is very easy to prepare and sometimes when you don’t have any other vegetables in the fridge just go for it. Especially people who live abroad have limitations in vegetable markets and also in recipes so they can definetly try this. Go for it and let me know, did i solve your problem?
