Pitha is a specialty dish, mostly prepared in sankranti. It’s basically a container filled with varieties of stuffing. My experimental dish looks like the Pitha. So you can call it “Pitha”, but this is not exact traditional pitha. This “Veg-Pitha” is too much healthy & testy, because it’s stuffing with full of vegetable. Most of the children’s are not like the vegetables but they like snacks and that’s why I twist the taste, so my little friends would love it.

Main ingredients are Carrot, Cauliflower and Spring Onion.

Carrot provides us many of the essential vitamins and nutrients that are necessary for our body to function properly.

Cauliflower is very low in calories, it’s contains several anti-cancer phyto-chemicals like sulforaphane and plant sterols such as indole-3-carbinol, which appears to function as an anti-estrogens agent. Fresh cauliflower is excellent source of vitamin C.

Spring Onions add great nutritive and taste value to a dish and can be used in different ways. Nutritionally, green onions have a combination of the benefits of onions and greens. They are an excellent source of vitamin K and vitamin C, and a very good source of vitamin A too.

So, now you understand how much valuable those vegetables. Okay! Let start this “Veg Pitha” recipe..
