There are certain ingredients that can just dominate in flavor and make it its own dish and rule the pallet :) One such great ingredient is the mighty Mint :) The flavor and smell can just make a simple dish a special one for sure :)

This subzi is my favorite for the very reason mentioned above. Its very simple to make and tastes great with any Indian bread. Just the best I say :)
