Apt use of spices can effectively cover up the inadequacy of salt, ensuring that a dish still tastes fabulous! This Mili Jhuli Subzi is a perfect examples. A tempting collection of colourful and juicy veggies is cooked with tomatoes and a paste of onions, spices and seeds.

This paste also includes poha, which helps to thicken the gravy. We have restricted the salt to suit those with high blood pressure, but that hardly constrains the bursting flavour of this mildly-spicy gravy. Relish the Mili Jhuli Subzi with hot phulkas to experience its irresistible charm!
