NOTE : 

  1. Roasting of rava in medium flame is very very important for a great kharabath. Else we will end up with a sticky kharabath . But dont reduce less than that mentioned . 
  2. Add more ghee and oil if you want exact hotel style kharabath.If you reduce oil and ghee in the recipe, khara bath may not have the same texture as in the picture.
  3. If you roast the rava well, you can increase the water quantity too .you will get nice soft kharabath .
  4. You can plus or minus veggies quantity and also variety of veggies used . You can also make them just with brinjals. 
  5. To save time , if you want you can precook veggies a bit and add . And simultaneously heat water in a different stove and add hot water .This will reduce cooking time .
