The unique taste of suva, fortified by moong dal and spiced with green chillies makes this subzi a must-try.

Suva and tomatoes are rich in vitamin A and iron, while moong dal provides the necessary protein .

The order of adding ingredients is very important to ensure that all of them are properly cooked without losing their texture and colour, or becoming mushy.

I was a wee bit sceptical about cooking without oil/ghee. I was amazed at how it turned out, tasty, not mushy & even my wife complimented on the final product. Simple.
