Just as veggies find a place in juices, fruits also find a place in subzis! In fact, fruits like papaya and guava combine very well with savoury spices, and the resulting sweet-sour-spicy preparation is very exciting to the palate. In Peru ki Subzi, fibre-rich guavas come together with vitamin A rich capsicum and tomatoes to make a tasty and healthy treat.
