Very Nice Recipe. I have never added milk to this subzi before. Does milk add any extra flavor or does it give any better texture?

It gives a different flavour and taste, usually I too do not add milk to any subzi's, but this dish tastes different than any other subzi, and it is done this way in Calcutta.
