Vegetable Sabji

Vegetable sabzi can be prepared in dry and in gravy form. i am sharing both recipes with you here. Initially i bought sabzi masala, that is available in the market and used it, later, i stopped buying the sabzi masala and added chilly powder, corriander powder, garam masala and kauri methi to my sabzi. it gave the same taste as the sabzi masala available in the market. but i am desperate in knowing what all go into sabzi masala. If you know, please share with me.
