  1. Yes..the basic spice mixture can be used to cook variety of veggies with little variations here and there..Fennel, mustard, Nigella, fenugreek and cumin remain the base of achari recipes..Achari actually means pickle like flavor. Their are variety of other spice blends which can be made and added to different veggies for different tastes and flavours like curry pwd, garam masala, panch phoran etc 🙂 Enjoy!

  2. I have subscribed to your channel for a long time and really enjoy your recipes. I'm from the US, but India food is one of my favorites and I make it at home all the time. I am just curious. I use the basic spice mixture you used in this recipe and same technique frequently, but I use whatever vegetables I have on hand. Sometimes it is cauliflower, sometimes, green beans, potato, kale, etc. and it always turns out tasty. Is it common to use other vegetables with this recipe?
