i can blindly prepare this subzi now without referring any has become a part of my weekly menu of subzis. so much like the subzis that we make at home regular for lunch or dinner thats why i like to make it quite often. no fuss at all, in fact i make the coconut and garlic paste in bulk and refrigerate to whip this subzi anytime. however i sometimes add potato cubes along with or even deep-fried paneer pieces, any combination tastes just wow!
