lal bhaji recipe

Today I am sharing Lal Bhaji recipe. It’s also known as Lal math and red spinach. Lal bhaji has two types one which is fully red including leaves and branches and second has red branches with green leaves. I am using second one; however recipe of both are same. Well In Chhattisgarh we usually eat leafy vegetable. most of the people like it because of its tempting red color, beside the colors it is a very good source of calcium, iron, vitamin A and vitamin C. ┬áIt’s very healthy everyone should eat it. very easy and less time taking recipe.
