Start by preparing the pitod for the sabzi. For this, add besan, haldi, red chilli powder, salt, hing, jeera, ajwain, and oil to a bowl. Add water to form a thick batter.
Pour this batter into a non-stick pan and cook it for a few minutes, stirring continuously. You will notice the batter thicken. Transfer this batter to an oiled tray and let it cool. Once done, cut into small squares.
For the gravy, heat ghee in a pan and add jeera and mustard seeds. Once they start to crackle, add onions and hing, followed by ginger-garlic paste.
Add all the dry masalas and give it a nice mix. Now, add the tomato puree and cook for a few minutes. Add water and allow it to simmer.
