BASIC JAIN GRAVY



This is the basic jain gravy for subzis and side dishes without onion and garlic. This type of gravy can be used during fasting (vrat ) days, the days in which we do not use onion and garlic. Any side dish or gravies can be done using this without changing the creamy consistency of the gravies. 

NOTE: This is only the basic puree or paste substitute, for any side dish and this by itself is not a gravy.
 

INGREDIENTS:

Yellow pumpkin - 1 cup (diced)
Tomato - 1 Big
Green chillies - 1 or 2
Cashews - 4
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tsp.

METHOD:

Peel the pumpkin and chop roughly.

Soak cashews in lukewarn water for 15 minutes. Drain the water.

Heat oil in a pan, and saute the pumpkin, tomato and green chillies till done. Grind in a mixie alongwith cashews and salt to a fine paste and use in any side dish / subzis of your choice.

  6. Nice recipe. They do make tasty food without use of ingredients that we think are so essential! But I think use of oil/ghee/dry fruits are definitely more.

  20. Very nice gravy tip. By doing this, yellow pumpkin will be consumed, which is very healthy. Including red, orange and yellow color vegetables in our daily menu are essential.I think we can use this as a substitute for coconut for all gravies. Thank you.
