Satvik Malai Besan Mix Veg (mix Veg Creamy Gram Flour Curry)

In Rajasthan, many people follow a satvik diet (preparations which don't include onion and garlic) and generally I am in a dilemma if any guest turns out to be a strict follower of satvik food. Recently, my mother taught me this wonderful recipe that can be easily made for satvik guests and looks as fabulous as any rich creamy mix veg korma. Besides cream, the flavor of the sabji is highly enhanced by the aroma of roasted gram flour adding a zing to its consistency and taste.

The curry made by me however, lacks the creamy consistency as I am bit calorie conscious and mostly prefer less cream and oil in my sabji. But I am 100% sure that your guests will be highly impressed by your culinary skills if you present such a rich gravy preparation minus onion and garlic.
