The Valor Papdi nu Shak is a homely and tasty winter subzi, which tastes great with chapatis. Fresh and juicy valor papdi is cooked with a traditional tempering of mustard seeds, and flavoured with a mix of taste-givers like garlic paste and green chilli paste.

Coconut adds to the taste of this subzi and also gives it a nice mouth-feel. Serve it hot with chapatis right off the tava. This is one of the most comforting combinations for a cold winter’s day!

I tried the papdi with vegan without sugar & coconut. It was really delicious. Lime juice add good punch.

I love this walor subzi, the taste of valor papdi along with sugar lemon juice and spice taste perfect with kadhi and puris, I often make this on sundays for lunch for my family.
