Sev Tamatar Ki Subzi

I am born and raised in a jain family and this week we are trying to observe paryushan and making jain and paryushan friendly dishes at home. If I have to share my favorite paryushan recipe then it is Sev Tamatar Ki Subzi. My dad and I am huge fan of dish. My mom made this very often even when we were not observing paryushan. It’s very easy to make and requires minimum ingredients that are usually in your pantry. I can literally have this as my comfort meal.
