Shalgum (Turnip) subzi

Its winter here and a time when one would like to have French fries, but here is something not fried or baked, but cooked to appear like it. The simple turnip too makes its appearance in the winter market, and when fresh it is a gourmet’s delight. It is a must have for those interested in keeping a watch on their waist lines while enjoying rich winter recipes.
