Cauliflower Stalks n Carrot Pachidi

Pachidi is either sweet or sweet n sour. It is can be had as an accompaniment to biryanis, Pualo etc.,
Pachidi is made with a vareity of vegetables n fruits. Today I made this pachidi with cauliflower stalks n Carrot. It turned out absolutely delicious n was perfect with the Pulao n Mutton gravy. I used Vinegar instead of tamarind extract to get a lighter coloured pachidi. N if you dont have Dates you can jaggery for sweetness too.
