  2. Any other veggie – washed and then  chopped or sliced finely – 1 cup 
  3. Grated Coconut – 1 cup 
  4. Green Chillies – 3 or 4 (as per your spice level)
  5. Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

  • Add the chopped veggies , salt & sprinkle a little water .
  • Cover with a lid and let cook on simmer . 
  • Grind the green chillies , coconut , turmeric powder to a coarse paste  adding just a few drops of water .
  •  Add this mix when the veggies have cooked . Mix well and let simmer again for 5- 10 minutes until well done .

Notes :- 

  1. You may add cabbage singly or with a combination of one or more veggies as mentioned earlier . 
  2. You may add red chillies instead of green as per your choice .
  3. Usually methi is not added but I add because  my mother used to & I find the taste is enhanced .
  4. You may also avoid coconut totally to make a simple upkari . Just make a tempering with mustard seeds , & add chopped cabbage & a couple of green chillies with salt & cook .- See pic below ,
