Undhiyu, a mixed vegetable delicacy which is something one must have in the winter months in Gujarati homes but it takes a lot of effort and time to prepare, so these days it is easier to buy it rather than make it at home. Made with vegetables which are available during the winter season, it has various types of beans, root vegetables and other fresh vegetables cooked over a slow fire with special spices and herbs to get that unique taste which makes Undhiyu so special.
