Mixed Vegetable Subji with a Twist!

Mixed vegetable subji is my go to dish when I can’t figure out what to make or I have tons of extra vegetables lying around. The other day, however, when my brother in law and sister in law were coming over and although I had all the ingredients for the dish, I didn’t want to make it. One quick call to my mother gave me all the inspiration I needed. 

My mother advised me to put methi in my normal dish to give it a different taste as well as look. I thought that was genius. I quickly whipped up the dish this time with a little methi and it was a hit! Not a veggie was left.  


Try the recipe out for yourself! Guaranteed you will be hooked after just making it once.
