Malwani gravy in its original cooking style requires lots of coconut and oil, making it obviously high on the calorie scale! For a healthier version of this tasty subzi, use just 2 tbsp of coconut and lots of coriander.

To make it even healthier, I have used tikkis made from soya granules and potatoes. Add the soya tikkis just before serving this delectable subzi as otherwise they will soak up all the gravy and become soggy.

Soya Tikkis in Malwani Gravy can double up as a snack and also make a great vegetable when served with rotis and rice .
