As the name of the dish suggests, we tried giving an authentic Punjabi taste by making a few modifications to the original style of cooking and using ingredients found in Indian dishes. We tried to keep it as simple as possible for you to try at home. You are at liberty of adding other vegetables besides the choice of vegetables we have provided. Using vegetables in considerable amount would also make this dish healthier and nutritious for kids. So give it a try and come up with your feedback.
