Exotic Mixed Vegetable Curry

We often tend to have a lot of veggies in small quantities and wonder how to use them.Todays recipe is an assortment of veggies cooked in a exotic gravy flavored with some unique indian spices.This dish could surprise your unexpected guests to wonder if you had planned for their visit ;P. I always store paneer for such moments and adding it to this curry will make it really exotic. Enjoy the recipe.

  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 3/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 cups diced vegetables (carrot,potato,beans,peas,sweet corn kernels)
  • 1/2 cup diced cottage cheese/paneer
  • 2 tbsp oil
To Grind
  • 1 tsp dhania/coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp jeera/cummin powder
  • 8 cashew nuts
  • 2 elaichis
  • 3 cloves
  • 5 black pepper
  • 1/2 inch cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp khuskhus/poppy seeds
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • pinch of turmeric
  • salt to taste
Make a fine paste of all the ingredients to grind and keep aside. Make a fine paste of onions and tomatoes and keep aside.Sprinkle some water on the chopped veggies and microwave for 4 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan, add onion tomato paste and fry till oil begins to saturate, now add the paste prepared earlier for gravy and fry till the rawness is gone and oil begins to saturate again. Now add the cooked vegetables and stir for 2 minutes nicely.Add enough water and close with a lid and let it cook on sim for 10-15 minutes.Then add cottage cheese and stir nicely and cook for 2 more minutes until it completely blends. Your mixed vegetable curry is ready. Serve hot with rice or rotis.
