Here is a great way to enjoy the traditional East Indian recipe, which is originally cooked with whole parwals in a lot of oil.
But here, we bring to you an absolutely nutritious treat by giving a healthy twist to this delicious preparation. We have cut the parwal into halves and sauteed it in very little oil, to make sure the oil absorption is at its minimum thereby making it a healthy alternative to the traditional Doi Potol.
The blend of curds with flavorful spices gives this recipe a delectable taste. We have used less spices to suit pregnant women as well.
This healthy variant of the traditional eastern recipe is sure to tingle your taste buds! Make sure you serve it hot and enjoy it with soft phulkas!
