The green paste gives this otherwise simple dish a complete makeover! It increases the vitamin A content, while the vegetables add fibre. Vitamin A increases immunity and also nourishes our skin and improves vision. Despite the interesting flavour and health benefits, this dish is surprisingly easy to make!
