Startling though it may seem, here is a wonderful and healthy modification of the famous festive Gujarati dish which is ordinarily loaded with oil! I've cut down on the oil as well as the invisible fat that comes from coconuts.
I’ve also used vegetables like drumsticks, tendli etc instead of the usual overdose of yam, potatoes etc. The methi muthias added to this recipe are also baked instead of being fried – not only are they low-fat but their golden brown colour is also visually appealing!
There is also a hearty amount of iron and calcium in this recipe. However, do remember, a rich dish is a rich dish however much it might be modified – so relish this only occasionally!
