Kamal Kakdi or Lotus Stem or Bhasinda is served and cooked in different style all across the globe. Mostly the recipes are dry, however I have used Lotus Stems to prepare the most delicious and healthy Chaap. Although whenever we heard of Chaap, in vegetarian recipe, first thought cross our mind is Soya Chaap. Well here I have prepared Chaap prepared with Lotus Stem, and I have named this recipe as “Kamal Kakdi Ki Chaap” (कमल ककड़ी की चाप) which is inviting to not only vegetarians but also to Non- vegetarians, they would find this chaap to the level of Finger licking. This chaap is different as I am serving it soaked in gravy which makes it more tempting.
Let’s have a quick look on the list of the Ingredients used to prepare Kamal Kakdi Ki Chaap :
- Lotus Stem or Kamal Kakdi 2 peeled and cleaned properly (कमल ककड़ी)
- Carrots Grated 2 (दो कसी हुई गाजर)
- Gram Flour 2 tea spoon
