When it spatters, add asafetida and bay leaves, now add kair, sangli and kumathaia. Mix Salt and cover the utensil. Cook till it softens the ingredients. This takes about and half-an-hour. When cooked, add Amchor and all the Masala and Sugar. If it starts sticking to the bottom of the karahi pour half glass of water. Cook for 10 minutes. Then add Garam Masala and Sugar and mix well. This sabzi can be preserved for 2*3 days. In a refrigerator it lasts even longer. It should be eaten at least 2-3 hours after it is cooked. This allows the vegetables to absorb the Masala.
