This recipe is an all time favourite. Puréed cauliflower perked with onion and spices imparts a creamy texture to this subji and eliminates the use of high calorie ingredients such as cream and cashewnuts. Methi has plenty of iron and vitamin a while fresh green peas provide fibre which adds bulk and satiates your appetite. This recipe is a perfect accompaniment for nutritious garlic naans.
