We served this with some simple Mung Bean Dal, flatbread, pickle, onion and cucumber salad.
Want to see more of what we have been gorging on lately with Mom around, check out my Instagram feed.
Mom loves simple Indian Subzi (veggie saute/stir fry) with a whole spice or two. She keeps changing up the spice(fennel, mustard, coriander or caraway seeds) and combines it with other flavors(ginger, garlic, chili etc) to make a variation of the same veggie side. This one can be changed to taste with different spices, tempering and flavor combinations.
