The moment we think of hariyali, we think of a green gravy made of coriander and green chillies. But, in this Punjabi delicacy, the hariyali base comes from a combination of spinach and mint leaves, which gives the subzi a really fabulous taste and vibrant aroma, not to forget its classic greenish hue.

Although this dish has a wide assortment of veggies, with different flavours and textures, the addition of capsicum is quite noticeable because of its unique crunch and mildly spicy taste.

The use of milk and cream makes the Vegetable Hariyali quite rich and luscious, while garam masala gives it a strong aroma and a spicy taste.

Also do try other Punjabi roz ki subzis like Subz Do Pyaza and Rajma .

there is no use of adding capsicum, the curry looks cheap... add paneer or any bold stuff. the curry is same as palak paneer. it is very badly described here...
