That day I was searching for vegetable do-pyaza recipe and stumbled upon this Subzi Mirchi do pyaza recipe from master chef Sanjeev Kapoor ... which sound great to me and over that this dish is made with only green chilli, which gave this dish an entirely distinctive taste, that's why this dish is called Subzi(vegetable) Mirchi(green chilli) Do pyaza
You can assemble any kinds of vegetable, I added cauliflower, carrot, green beans, potato, sweet potato and bell peppers. The recipe asked for Bhavnagri chillies, which I didn't have, so used regular green chillies and baby onions, I substituted that with sliced regular onions. But I would love to try sometime the exact version when I have all the ingrdts.

Potato, Sweet potato, carrot
Green Beans & Bell peppers ( Cut all vegetables in 11/2" thick pieces
