If it has big and hard seeds just discard the seed n use.
I use mustard oil for this to enhance the flavour…but you can use any other cooking oil.
By adding rice flour…it gives a nice crust to the outer part.
I cut into big chunks a s turai is cooked faster so in this way it is crispy form outer side and juicy, soft from inside.
By adding little sesame seeds it gives a crunchy bite to the recipe.
You can try with different veggie like potato , brinjal , pumpkin, raw papaya, beans, tondli…or you can mix match these n prepare.
