A low calorie subzi for health freaks! This subzi is a double dose of health as it is not only low cal but also made using soya oil, soya granules, fenugreek etc. which are high in vitamin A and calcium. Low fat milk (99.7% fat free) is easily available in the market, however you can make skimmed milk (low fat milk) at home by boiling the milk and removing the cream; repeat this twice and your skimmed milk is ready. Milk helps to pep up the flavour of this dish as well as moistens the subzi. Relish it hot with phulkas, page 19 for a hearty low calorie fare. If the subzi becomes dry after some time, add milk and reheat.
