Did you all came across the review which I posted earlier about the book Gujarati Kitchen. If not check it now here. This recipe is from her cookbook..When I was reading that book, I came across this recipe which got my immediate attention because of its simplicity..I made this sabzi immediately and result was wow..
This subzi get its unique flavour and taste from the fresh masala which we add..Making that masala is wicked easy, it just calls for few fresh stuffs which are readily available in each and every household. You could make this masala in bulk and store it in freezer for easy access..This can be served with either rice and dal or with hot roti..
I hope you all like it and let me know what you think..
