Mixed vegetables tossed with onion, red pepper with a touch of spice. Light and delicious, and easy to prepare, can be served as a side dish or as a quick snack. Slap it up with a chapatti, tortilla wrap or even a Naan it's truly sensational.

Testimonial:

"Dear Spices of India, After continually bringing back large quantities of my favourite sauce mixes from Goa and having to wait for my next holiday to replenish, you can't imagine, how happy I was to see that I could purchase them back at home. I would like to congratulate you on your wide selection that is reasonably priced and on the the prompt delivery. Keep up the good work! And for anyone out there who likes butter chicken, you must try Parampara's mix, it's so easy and gorgeous."
