Haldi ki sabzi is a common dish in Rajasthani household. Tastes awesome and full of nutrition.
Making this sabzi is quite simple, with a little perfect recipe.
Haldi/turmeric is good for bones,Immunity booster .
Made specially during winters as this is the time when Kacchi haldi is available in market.
This recipe is made with Desi ghee to mild the strong aroma of haldi and tastes much better.
While peeling the skin of haldi you have to be careful with not wearing any whites and cover your hands with gloves, unless you are OK with all yellow palm.
I would suggest to serve this sabzi like you serve any side dish or chutney, as one won’t be able to consume haldi sabzi like a curry.
