Traditionally Gujaratis make this recipe with oodles of oil, but you'll be surprised to know that I have made this subzi without any oil, yet maintaining the original flavour. So, soak in the richness of vitamin A and C in tomatoes without worrying about oil! To make this subzi in a jiffy make the muthias in advance and refrigerate them.
