Parwal Sabzi

Parwal Sabzi

 I am not sure how many of you know about this vegetable. As far as I am concerned, I saw it only after I got married. My hubby says it is quite famous in North India.

It looks like our Kovakkai, however, it tastes quite different than Kovakkai. My hubby says it is very healthy too. This was cooked by my hubby :-)

Parwal - The Vegetable looks like this


Parwal - 500 Grams (washed and cut into cubes)
Alo/Potato - 2 (Medium,peeled and cut into cubes)
Bay leaf - 1 
Onion- 1 (Big,Finely Chopped)
Chilly powder- 1 Tablespoon
Dhania Powder -Tablespoon
Turmeric Powder-1/4 Teaspoon
Salt and Oil
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 Teaspoon


In a non stick Kadai, add a tablespoon of oil and add the Parwal and toss it till it is 50% done. This would take about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, In another kadai add 2 tablespoon of oil, add the Bay leaf, Onion and saute till onion is done. Then add the potato and cook for 10 minutes.

Then add ginger garlic masala and all dry masala and saute for 2 minutes.

Then add some water and add the sauteed Parwal.

Cover and cook for another 10 minutes stirring in between and the Parwal Sabzi is ready.

You can have this with Rice or Roti.


  • While cooking Parwal sometimes you may get the seed. Don't throw it away. Cook it and eat it. 
  • If you want to save time,you can also add boiled potatoes.
