ABOUT Mixed Vegetables in Spinach Gravy RECIPE

A very healthy and nutritious sabzi prepared by cooking seasonal vegetables in spinach gravy. There are many names attached to this sabzi when it comes to ordering this sabzi at a restaurant. Few of the names which we are aware of are – Diwani Handi or Subz Diwani Handi. Call it by any name, but in simple terms it is nothing but seasonal vegetables of your choice cooked in a creamy spinach gravy. We have tried to make this sabzi healthy and avoided cream in this.

  17. Now add the palak puree. Mix well and cook for another 2-3 minutes. If you prefer gravy, you may add water at this stage.
