Some veggies are very healthy but you are at a loss of ideas to include them more often in your diet.

Turai is a typical example. Although rich in nutrients, it is rarely focused on because of its mushiness and lack of intrinsic flavour.

Here is a recipe that can change the scenario. Perked up with peppy tomato pulp and a variety of spice powders, Masalewali Turai is a quick and easy subzi that will top the culinary charts at home!
