Dry Subzis form a part of our daily meals at least 4 to 5 times a week. However the word ‘dry’ is associated with ‘no gravy’ and actually the subzi is cooked in oodles of oil. This section is a compilation of recipes using minimal oil or they are absolutely zero oil.


4 techniques to reduce oil in your Healthy Sabzis:

1. Stir fry the vegetables instead of deep frying in recipes like Bhindi Masala.

2. Add only 1 teaspoon oil or less per person in the subzi.

3. Instead of adding extra oil for sautéing add water to cook.

4. Boil or steam the vegetables so that less oil is required to cook them.
