Popular Subzis with Gravy

Some dishes like puri go well with dry subzis, but for most dishes ranging from rotis to pulaos, a subzi with gravy is the right combo. A subzi with gravy adds a slightly lubricating touch to the meal. So, it helps to include one such subzi in your menu, especially if you are not having dal with the meal.

Indian gravies are made of ingredients like tomatoes, onions, cashews and milk. They may be light or rich and creamy. Likewise, the flavour also ranges from slightly sweet to moderately spicy and very spicy. For example, malai gravy will be slightly sweet while one with onions and chillies will be spicy.

Once the gravy is made, vegetables, koftas or paneer are added to it to make a tasty main course! By mixing and matching different gravies with different combinations of veggies and other ingredients, you can come up with an endless variety of subzis. Each region has its own classic gravy and popular veggie combos too. The choice of gravy and veggies might also vary from season to season. For example, in the summer when veggies are costly one might use preserves like wadi in their gravies.

Popular all over India, gravy-based subzis can be enjoyed for lunch or dinner along with Indian breads or rice. They are quite filling and ignite the meal with an exciting spark.

Three popular types of gravies
1. Red gravy made with tomatoes
2. Green gravy made with spinach
3. White gravy made with cashews and milk

It has a pleasant, moderately spicy taste and is a perfect base for koftas, paneer and veggies too.

2. Lehsuni Paneer Palak Subzi
3. Sprouted Curry with Methi Muthia

White gravy, as the name suggests is luscious and creamy, often with a slightly sweet tinge. It generally includes ingredients like cashews, coconut and/or cream together with onions for the required pungency. The white gravy goes well with colourful veggies, and the contrast between the gravy and the veggies is very attractive to behold. However, it is very popularly used with paneer and koftas.
1. Paneer in White Gravy
2. Quick Vegetable Korma
3. Methi Mutter Malai
4. Peshawari Paneer
5. Subzi Pasanda

So, go for one of the following Indian breads that taste really good with gravy-based subzis.

I saw the real mung sprouts in chinese shops at USA. In india we allow sprouts till only a small root comes out. But, if the sprouting is continued, we can get a long white root and tiny leaflets. I thought this is a healthier way and should try some recipe.
