This bhaji is prepared on the second day of Ganapati. The second day is called “Rushi Panchami” and hence the name.This has some similarities to the Avial but most of the vegetable are different. Also Imli and corn are the key ingredient here. Very easy to prepare if you have all the veggies and with no masala, just the green chillies.



  1. Soak the peanuts in water for 1/2 an hour. Cut the gilka, shirala, bhindi and pumpkin in big pieces Grind the coconut and green chillies into a fine paste. Chop the red chard and alu leaves fine. Cut the corn into rounds.Pressure cook the corn,Peanut
  2. Heat Oil or ghee in a pressure pan and add the jeera. When the jeera sputters add the gilka, shirala, bhindi, pumpkin, red chard and alu leaves and mix. Toss in the cooked corn and peanuts and add the coconut paste, salt and jaggery.
  3. Mix and pressure cook the subji for one two whistles.
  4. Serve hot with rotis or phulkas or rice. Several other vegetables like drumsticks, suran, yam, potatoes can be added. Just try to avoid the methi or shepu which overpowers the flavors of the other subjis.
