      We have not added any water in this recipe of Onion Potato Bhaji. The pot lid with water captures the condensation (water given out from onions and potatoes) which will be returned back while cooking. Your vegetable will not get burnt. Cooking with water on lid allows it to cook evenly and faster. Also, the nutrients of the food can’t escape and are, thus, retained.
