Dhania is a great match for mushrooms! It really perks up the flavour and complements its colour too, making the dish visually and gastronomically appealing. The excitement is multiplied, thanks to a spicy paste of onions and cauliflower, which works well along with fenugreek leaves and garam masala to make this Mushroom and Coriander Subzi a top-ranking main course. Low-fat milk, curds and coriander make this recipe a good source of calcium, while the low-cal benefits of mushrooms make it suitable for weight-watchers too. In short, this dish is not only easy to make and fun to eat, but also healthy for your bones!
