Green, dals and other veggies...all in one subzi... this is what I was looking for, to have a recipe which has many nutrients in one to fulfill my daily needs. The masalas in this recipe are also not very strong, they can be easily handled during pregnancy. I enjoy this subzi with hot phulkas at least once a week. Thanks for this recipe...
