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.
