Shepuchi Bhaaji with Mugachi Dal (Dill Leaves Bhaaji with Moong Dal)
This traditional dish is still very popular in Maharashtra and is eaten very often by people from the low income group. This is a nourishing dish because it contains both a leafy vegetable and a pulse, making it an almost complete dish nutritionally. Coming from the celery (Apiaceae) family, it is known as Shepu in Marathi, Suva Bhaji in Hindi, Sathakuppai in Tamil and Sowa in Bengali. Both dill leaves and moong dal are rich in nutrients and help regulate many body functions.
