Leela Kanda ane Ganthia nu shaak is a quick curry made with spring onions , tomatoes and Ganthia . One can use any variety of farsan . The dish gets ready in just a couple of minutes if you have the onion chopped . The Ganthia is added at the time of serving .
Leela is green and Kanda is onion , so this curry is made with the spring onions along with regular red onions . The white bulb of the spring onions and a wee bit of the red onion is given a quick toss and then loads of tomatoes are cooked till mushy . The farsaan and the spring onion greens are added while serving . These appear like a garnish , but play an important role in the curry . The curry will depend a lot on the variety of ganthia that you use . I have used the famous Bhavnagari Ganthia . These are very soft and melt in the mouth kinds . They have a slight hint of pepper and asafoetida . Since the ganthias do not have a overpowering flavour , you can enjoy all the flavours of the curry at the same time . The mushy onion tomato curry , the soft melt in the mouth ganthia and that super crunch from the fresh vibrant greens of spring onion .
You got to make this curry and I bet you will get hooked on to it . It has become a family favourite . Every time we can’t think of a veggie we quickly make this curry and enjoy it with any Indian bread , it may be Chopda, Rotli , Thepla or Rotla .
