Shepu bhaji recipe with step by step photos – simple yet tasty homely recipe of dill leaves with moong lentils.

shepu bhaji

Its been a long time since I shared any green leafy veggie recipe. This suva bhaji with moong dal is one of those sabzis or bhaji that I make at times to go along with chapatis.

The recipe comes from my mom and is very easy too. The shepu sabzi tastes good with chapatis. Also can be packed in the tiffin box.

Suva are also known as dill leaves in english and shepu in marathi language. these leaves have a strong aroma and slight pungent taste. At home usually we make this sabzi with suva or at times we make Aloo suva sabzi or Suva pakoras.
