Celebrity nutritionist recommends sage’s vegetable on Janmashtami; know the benefits

There are so many seasonal foods and dishes that are prepared on special occasions. With today being Janmashtami, celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar took to Twitter to share the Janmashtami special of Rishinchi bhaji or sage’s vegetable, a delicacy prepared in Maharashtra.

“This is cooked and relished on #Janmashtami. It’s a bhaji with all the wild greens and makai, the harvest of the season, cooked in their own juices. Best enjoyed with a rice/jowar bhakri with a dollop of white butter or ghee and some dahi (curd),” read the post from Diwekar.
