Step-By-Step Photo Instructions
#1. Roast soybeans in a pan for 5-10 minutes on medium-high heat, stirring continuously until they are roasted and turn slightly brown. You can add oil to roast them, but I prefer without it. Once roasted, set them aside.
#2. Add all vegetables; tomato, onion, ginger, garlic, all spices, and seasonings to the bowl.
#3. Add roasted soybeans in a bowl.
#4. In a pan, heat mustard oil for a min on high heat. Once hot, pour oil into the bowl. Combine everything well, and bhatmas sadeko is ready to serve.
#1. You can customize the spiciness to your liking. If you prefer a milder flavor, omit the green chili altogether. On the other hand, if you love spicy food, feel free to add more green chili.
#2. If you don’t like cilantro, you can use spring onion instead for garnish.
#3. Avoid storing bhatmas sadeko. Serve it immediately after preparation to maintain its crispy texture and freshness.
