  • Kadhai / Wok
  • Tadka Pan


Vegetable –

  • ¾ cup Potato (cut lengthwise)
  • ½ cup Papaya (cut lengthwise)
  • ½ cup Pumpkin (cut lengthwise)
  • ½ cup Eggplant (cut lengthwise)
  • ½ cup Drumstick (cut lengthwise)
  • ½ cup Colocassia (cut lengthwise)
  • ½ cup Pointed gourd (cut lengthwise)
  • ½ cup Spine gourd (cut lengthwise)
  • ½ cup Ridge gourd (cut lengthwise)

Tempering –

  • ½ tbsp Pancha phutana
  • ½ no. Onion (medium) (chopped)
  • 4-5 no. Garlic clove (crushed)
  • 2-3 no. Red chili
  • 2-3 no. Green chili
  • 1 tsp Mustard oil

Others –

  • 1 pinch Turmeric powder (optional)
  • Salt as needed
  • 2 cup Water + little more


  • In a kadhai / wok take water along with salt, turmeric powder and start boiling.
  • Into that add potato, papaya, pumpkin, colocassia and allow to cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes first.
  • Then add rest vegetables, give a nice mix.
  • Cover the kadhai and allow to boil till all the vegetables are well cooked, but not overcooked .
  • Meanwhile, heat mustard oil in a tadka pan.
  • Add pancha phutana and allow to splutter over low-medium heat.
  • Then add chopped onion, crushed garlic cloves along with red chilies and green chilies.
  • Saute everything till onion turns translucent.
  • Pour the tempering over the cooked vegetables and gently give a mix.
  • Allow to cook for 1 minute more over medium heat.
  • Turn off heat and serve hot with some roti or even steamed rice !


  • Do not boil the vegetables till overcooked. Else the entire dish will be mushy at the end.
  • As the name says, this santula has some liquid in it hence the name is Pani Santula. So always keep an eye while boiling the vegetables, if there is a shortage of liquid then add a little more water.
  • Vegetables can be picked as per choice.
  • Turmeric powder is not added in an authentic way. But I like to add at least 1 pinch into my version of pani santula as mentioned in the ingredients list.

    I always love traditional dishes. This pani santula sounds healthy and absolutely delicious. Something like chochchori. But we use raw vegetables in chochchori. Now I have to try your recipe. Also loved the name.
