Mawa Matar , Low Fat Khoya Mutter

Mawa (khoya) is extremely high in calories and fat, enough to scare the weight-watchers! Here I use low-calorie mawa, which I made by adding some lime juice to low fat milk to get the actual grainy texture.

Milk enhances the nutritive value of this subzi by providing protein and calcium. Try your own variations of this recipe by using other vegetables in place of green peas.

Serve with Garlic Roti and Beetroot, Cucumber and Tomato Raita .
