Dry vegetables are a category of vegetarian recipes prepared without curries. They are a great accompaniment to the lentils and the curry preparations.

Dry vegetables are usually made in oil with different spices and herbes without adding water. The basic nature of some vegetables determines the selection of spices, for example, arbi (taro root) is made in carom seeds (ajwain) as it helps in digesting arbi. Pumpkin is made in fenugreek seeds (methi dana) to increase the flavor.

Green vegetables are a good source of vitamins, fibers, amino acids, and minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Potassium, Zinc etc. Whereas some people drive miles to get fresh, organic green vegetables regularly, others don't know what to do with them :-).. Well, we can make many delicacies from these veggies. From soup to salad, dry vegetables, curries, breads, rice delicacies, and even desserts - plenty of dishes can be made from greens........Greens are really good for our health and we must include them in our diet on daily basis.
