Today , I am going to share a yummy home made vegetable fryums from my grandmother's treasure.


Brinjal  and Cluster beans - few
Well beaten curd - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Asafoetida - a pinch


1. Slice vegetables . Mix them well with beaten curd , salt and asafoetida.
2. Sun dry them till well dried as shown in the picture . Everyday change the plate used for drying the fryums and flip up veggies to the other side to dry up.
3.Dust it up and store them in airtight containers for months together.
4. Deep fry them well and serve with rice.
