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
