Many of you keep commenting that we can't find vegetables during lockdown; then I thought let me share this Gujarati Vegetarian Recipe which Jains eat -Sev Padelu Shak - I have modified it slightly to suit tastebuds of other parts of the country. But this is what Jains eat during the Paryushan festival where there are no vegetables; and this Sev Padelu Shak is made from Besan and Buttermilk.

In a bowl, Take 1/2 cup Besan (chickpeas flour)
Add some salt
Add 1 tsp Turmeric Powder and 1.1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
We will be making this in 2 cup buttermilk; so masalas are very few
Now add 1 tbsp water and make a dough- should be thinner than Paratha dough but not too runny; it should be semi solid-semi liquid.
Make sure there are no lumps of besan flour left in the dough- it should be like a smooth paste
Keep buttermilk ready; it should be sour for better taste. If it's not sour then u can add few drops of lemon to make it slightly sour.
Heat up a deep pan; add 2 tbs oil
Now add some garlic chopped cloves 2-3 should be fine
let it cook and then add 1.1/2 tsp red chili powder
Kathiyawadi food is slightly spicy
Now add 2 cups of buttermilk (make sure it's not too thick - should be water consistency)
Keep stirring the pan so that buttermilk and water don't get separated
Add some salt
Wait for a boil and then slow down the flame
Take a strainer and apply some oil on the surface of the strainer
Keep stirring the pan
Now take the besan paste we made earlier and rub it on the strainer
cook till sev comes up; now stir gently
Again follow this process; sev coming up means it's getting cooked.
Finish the process till all paste is over and you get a boil
That's it Sev Padelu Shak is ready.
You may add Coriander on top.
Enjoy with Roti or Rice.
