Northern India’s Favourite Vegetable Dish (Subzi)

Welcome to the Gourmet Indian Recipe Series. Today is the best very vegetarian dish that India has to offer and the only dish that both the rich and poor are able to delight in alike…. Subzi

The food you can sample in India is as diverse as the rich Indian culture, its racial structure, its geography and the incredible climate. The essence of excellent Indian cooking revolves around the appropriate use of various aromatic spices. The skill lies in the subtle blending of a variety of spices to enhance rather than overwhelm the basic flavor of a particular dish. These spices are also used both as appetisers and digestives.
