(Subzi, Vegetable Tomato Masala, Sabzi, Bhaji, Dry And Semi-Dry North Indian Curries)

When we were children one of the quickest meals my mom used to make was steamed rice and a vegetable. She would add nice amounts of ghee to steaming hot rice and mix it with vegetable and feed us. Though, I have never told this to my mom, that quick meal she made of rice and vegetable was always my favorite meal. I now wonder, what was so special about it, that it just tasted so heavenly and delicious. Well, the vegetable that she made was the hit quotient in that meal. No masala, no gravy, no creaminess, just wholesome vegetables with choicest of spices. Yes!!! I am talking about the dry vegetable or sookhi sabzi.

Dry Vegetables or Dry Subzis are usually made in oil with different spices and herbs without adding water or very little water. It is one of the easiest and tastiest ways of including wholesome vegetables in our diet. This method of cooking the vegetables will also be enjoyed by children instead of the boring and bland salads. As we all know vegetables are endowed with almost all of the nutritional principles that our body needs. They are good sources of vitamins, mineral, antioxidants and dietary fiber. Majority of our day to day used vegetables are very low in calories and saturated fats. There is a long list of vegetables whose calorie is less than 20 per 100 grams such as asparagus, cabbage, brinjal, spinach, bottle gourd etc. Many studies show that these low calorie but nutrient rich foods help human body stay fit and free from diseases. The oil used in cooking the dry vegetables is very minimal (it does not take more than 2 teaspoons of oil). The spice level is also low and hence it would be loved by children and old people in the family.

These dry vegetables can be made very easily and quickly and hence it is the best option for cooking on busy weekdays. Any further reasons needed to explore this variety of vegetable?? I am sure none. Do try the list of dry vegetables I have tried and explore further to add your unique touch. Cheers!!
