Undhiyu or Oondhiya is a mixed vegetable Gujarati curry. The traditional Undhiyu is a seasonal curry as some of the classic ingredients like Surti papdi (Indian Hyacinth beans) and Purple Yam (Kaand in Gujarati) are available only in winter. The rich, flavourful curry is made in different versions in various parts of Gujarat. 

The veggies - surti papdi, raw banana, yam and brinjal - are cut into large chunks for a good Undhiyu. Undhiyu tastes best when cooked on a low flame till the vegetables are tender. This highly nutritious side dish goes well with hot phulkas.
