Santula is a mixed vegetable curry from Odisha. This delicious curry is highly nutritional because Santula is low on oil and comprises a varied mix of fresh, seasonal vegetables.
The goodness of fresh vegetables like pumpkin, beans, carrot, drumstick, snake gourd makes Santula a satisfying side dish. Panch Phoron - a mix of five condiments including fenugreek seeds, nigella seeds, cumin seeds, black mustard seeds and fennel seeds - is traditionally used for this Oriya style curry.
Santula is best served with rice, phulkas or any type of Indian bread.
