    Green Garlic Sabzi

    Another ingredient that is available in winter is the green garlic. Whilst the most common thing one can do is make chutney but you can also prepare green garlic sabzi. It has a lovely and balanced flavour which is noticeable but not overpowering.

    For most Gujaratis, winter isn't winter without the steaming bowls of undhiyu on their dining table. 'Undhu' which means upside down in Gujarati is a mixed vegetable dish that is a regional specialty of Surat. Definitely a must try in this season.

    Gajar Pak

    Winter is here, and it's the season for vibrant red carrots. There's nothing better than making some gajar halwa. Apart from that, you can even try gajar pak. It is same as halwa but presented in the form of a barfi.

    Daulat Ki Chaat
