Indian Sabzi Recipes | 20 Dry Vegetables | Sookhi Sabji

Indian Sabzi Recipes – Dry vegetable recipes or sookhi sabjis are the corner stone of Indian Cuisine. They are a category of vegetarian recipes which are prepared without a gravy.

Indian sabjis or dry vegetables are usually fried or shallow fried in vegetable oil with nil or minimal water. Use of herbs and spices lends them a unique taste and aroma. The selection of spices varies with the vegetables and plays an important role in final aroma and taste.

For example, ajwain (carom seeds) may go very well with dry arbi ki sabzi (taro root). Methi (fenugreek) adds beautifully to kaddu ki sabzi (pumpkin curry) whereas adrak (ginger) goes well with aloo gobi (potato cauliflower).

There is huge variation in the preparation of these sabzis in every region as well. Every region in India has its own locally grown and seasonal vegetables. Each region has its own unique way of cooking too resulting in a wide variety of dry vegetable dishes in the country.

These dry vegetables are enjoyed not only as breakfast with Indian breads but also serve as main course dishes on their own. In a meal, sookhi sabzi is generally accompanied by dal, sambar or raita and are eaten along with bread and rice.

Many of the Indian sabzis are also prepared with green leafy vegetables. Green vegetables are a good source of vitamins, fibers, anti-oxidants, iron and minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc etc.
