a low cal subzi that works really well for your palate as well for your dropping haemoglobin levels. when i was anemic my doctor told me to increase intake or iron rich foods like leafy vegetables and pulses etc. but it sounded very boring to me however not after i tried this yummy recipe. i started liking chawli leaves and make this many times with steam/ jeera rice. milk and cornflour mixture works wonder to impart the subzi a creamy texture minus the unwanted calories. tarlaji what an invention!

very tasty & easy to make ,only i had to use watercress as chawli bhaji is not available in NZ, still made an yummy dish. Thanks, that was a good change.
