Palak Aur Baigan Ki Sabzi(spinach And Brinjal Curry)
It would be a great injustice to this website, if I do not mention Palak aur Baigan ki sabzi. It is the most common recipe in Uttarpradesh and Bihar in Winter Season. It is ritually made on a day before any marriage ceremony and also in any religious celebrations. I still remember how my Grand mother used to make all the girls in the family sit in the varandah and separate the spinach leaves from the roots. The elders used to cut Brinjals and Potatoes and grandma used to sing all the marriage songs. As kid, I used to resent as it meant less playing for us but today when I make this sabzi, I feel nostalgic. Apart from the ritualistic value this sabzi score high in Iron, calcium and fibre content so having this sabzi on regular basis is good for health.
