  Oil 2 Tablespoon
  Sesame seeds 3 Tablespoon
  Roasted peanut powder 2 Tablespoon
  Cumin seeds 1 Teaspoon
  Red chilli powder 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Garam masala 1 Teaspoon
  Coriander powder 1 Teaspoon
  Turmeric powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Potato 1⁄2 , peeled and cubed
  Carrot 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), cubed in
  Lima beans 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Pavta)
  Drumsticks 5
  Diced green pepper 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Frozen peas 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Or Fresh Ones)
  Green beans 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Jaggery 1 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Green chilies 2
  Raisins 1 Tablespoon

1) Dry roast sesame seeds until it gets deep brown color. After sesame seeds are roasted, keep it aside until it cools down.
2) Mix sesame seeds and roasted peanut powder in blender and pulse 4 to 5 times to make it in to fine powder.
3) After its powdered down, add few teaspoons of water and again pulse to make in to fine paste.

4) Heat up 2 tbsp oil, add cumin seeds, let them sizzle up.
5) Add sesame and peanut paste and cook for 2 minutes. If required add few splashes of water in between.
6) Add dry spices, mix and again cook for 2 minutes.
7) Add potato, carrot, drumsticks, Lima beans, mix, add some water, cover and cook for 5 to 6 minutes.
8) After veggies are half way cooked, add green pepper, green peas, green chilies, green beans and mix well.
9) Add salt to taste, jaggery, some more water if required and cook until all veggies cook properly.

10) Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves and sesame seeds. Serve hot with Bajarichi Bhakari!

Chop veggies in uniform shape so that they will get cooked evenly.
If using fresh green peas then add it along with potato in to curry.
Add water later in sesame and peanut powder while making it in to paste because if we add water before we powder it down, it becomes very hard to make it in to fine paste.
