Phool gobi ani mod aleli mugachi bhaji recipe - A simple and healthy sabzi prepared with sprouted green grams and cauliflower to pair with chapti and rice with curry. I have used Maharashtrian kala masala to infuse the mild spice flavour in this bhaji. But you can also use garam masala instead of  kala masla if you don't have it. This bhaji is a nice accompaniment to Indian flat breads. You can carry it in the lunch box. Try out this delicious and healthy bhaji.
