We always think, if we don't add onions and garlic, the subzi might lack flavour. But, it was unbelievably tasty and flavourful, when suddenly I decided to make a very saatvik, no onion -no garlic side dish, with whatever vegetables I had. Even on a festival day or a vrat day, we can have this. Nothing is lacking in this. After making this dish, you wonder, how  this subzi can have so much taste  and aroma without onions and garlic!!!
