We have simple Indian vegetable salad to complete the meal plate.

1.Bihari Makhana Aur Matar Sabzi Recipe

Snow white makhana and green and fresh peas come together to create this flavourful dish. Spices like garam masala powder, red chilli powder, pounded cloves, coriander powder and a bit of kalonji give a nice taste to the recipe. This is a dry sabzi recipe and goes along well with phulkas or tawa parathas.

2. Kadhi Bari Recipe

Kadhi Bari Recipe is popular dish from the state of Bihar. Kadhi is a yogurt based stew made with mixing yogurt and gram flour and tempered with few aromatic spices. Bari's are the pakoda's or fritters added into this Kadhi while boiling. The bari's are traditionally fried, however we have made a healthier version by preparing it in a paniyaram pan, which soaks less oil.
