Simple Daily side Dishes - 3 Navalkol Vatanyachi Bhaji ( Kohlrabi and green peas side dish)

When it comes to nutrients, my simple mantra is to include as much variety of locally available vegetables in our daily meals. Navalkol is one such vegetable. While growing up though I have heard about it, it was not much available in our region. Now in Bangalore it is quite easily available and had become a staple vegetable in the household. Benefits of navalkol or Kohlrabi or knolkohl range from improving digestion, help boost the immune system, increase blood circulation, strengthen bones and many more. Though to see any of benefits of any of food habits, they have to be consistent!
So coming back to recipe, this simple bhaji is easy to make and can be easily carried for tiffin and tastes good at room temperature also
