- ‘It's not his fault that he's so terribly finicky about his food - he even separates his cutlets and sabzi from his curry-dowsed rice - that's the way he's been brought up.’
- ‘En route we made several stops, to allow Saroj to buy the roti and sabzi she needed for the unexpected guest.’
- ‘Supporting the event here are Bombay General Stores -- which has offered to serve a continuous stream of chapattis, sabji and dhal -- Bharat Electronics, Otis and others.’
