Healthy Subzis recipes
Last Updated : Jan 08,2018
No Indian meal is complete without one or more subzis. Whether lunch or dinner, the subzis play important roles in balancing the meal, not just in taste and texture but on the nutritional front too. Vegetables are nature's gift to us - low in calories but in rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that help fight diseases. Nutritionists suggest that we should eat at least three to five servings of vegetables daily to fulfil our nutrient requirements.
Unfortunately, traditional methods of cooking vegetables often use oodles of oil and unhealthy practices, drowning the goodness of the veggies in rich gravies or too much fat. This section on "Healthy Subzis" is a tool to avoid this! It shows you how to make a range of nutritious, low calorie and appetising subzis, which taste fabulous while still retaining the health benefits. You will find healthy subzis clubbed into interesting sections like Subzis with Gravies like Corn Palak, Subzis with Leafy Vegetables like the Hariyali Mutter, Semi-Dry Subzis, Paneer Based like the Paneer Palak Koftas in Makhani Gravy, Dry Subzis like the maharashtrian Methi Pitla and Subzis using Beans or Sprouts like the Spinach and Moath Beans Curry. They feature a variety of vegetables, from the most commonly used ones like onions, tomatoes, French beans, spinach and green peas to more uncommon ones like chawli bhaji, red pumpkin and ridge gourd.
