Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with roti or rasam, sambar, kuzhambu or curd rice.

Note -  I have used spice powder for this curry to make it more flavorful. If you do not want to add, you may add just coriander powder and chilli powder. I usually stock this curry podi and use it for most of my vegetables curries. 

Leftover sabji can be used as a stuffing for sandwich or toast.
