Lal Shaker Data Chocchori

I have already blogged lal shak bhaja recipe.Now this recipe is with the stem part of lal shak.I donot want to waste any eatable part. :)
So try and enjoy eating the below dish.


  1. Potatoes - 2 cut into 1" cubes
  2. Parwal(potol) - 3 cut into 1" cubes
  3. Brinjal - 1/2 cut into cubes
  4. Ridge gourd (Jhinge)- 1 cut into cubes
  5. Green Chilly - 3-4 slit
  6. Poppy seed paste - 1/2 cup
  7. Mustard paste - 1/2 cup (I did not have mustard so I did not use it)
  8. Lal shak data/stem - cut from 1 bunch and cut into 3" long pieces
  9. Mustard oil - 2 tbsp
  10. salt to taste
  11. kalanjee - 1/2 tsp
Wash and clean the vegetables.Peel them except brinjal and cut into cubes.

Grind poppy seed and mustard into a paste with one green chilly and salt.I had only poppy seeds.

Wash and clean the lal shak data.Cut them into 3"long pieces.
Now heat oil in a bottom heavy pan.I have used pressure cooker to cook fast.Otherwise you can use a normal kadai.When the oil is hot, add kalanjee and green chilly.
Add potatoes and fry for 3-4 mins.Then add brinjal ,parwal and ridge gourd.Fry for another 2-3 min till they are little soft.
Now add the lal shak data.Add salt and cover with the lid.Do not add water because the lal shak data will remove lot of water.I have given two whistles and let it cool down.Otherwise if you are cooking in kadai then cover with lid and cook in slow flame till all the vegetables are cooked.

Now open the lid.Add the mustard and poppy seed paste.Cook in high flame to remove all the excess water.
After it removes the water the data chocchori is ready to serve.It goes with rice/khichdi and even with roti.
