How to make Mix Vegetable

  1. In a kadhai or thick bottomed pan, heat oil.
  2. Add cumin seeds. Once they splutter, add the chopped onions.
  3. Fry the onions till they become transparent.
  4. Add the ginger-garlic paste. Fry for a minute or till the raw smell disappears.
  5. Add the tomatoes. Keep on stirring till the tomatoes become soft and pulpy. When the mixture becomes smooth and one, then add all the spice powders mentioned above.
  6. The process of frying the tomatoes takes a little longer. If you want to quicken the process, add some salt to the onion-tomato mixture. Fry the tomatoes on a low flame as you don’t want the tomatoes to get burnt.
  7. Now add all the spice powders one by one.
  8. Stir the spice powders with the onion-tomato mixture. Add the green chili.
  9. Mix in the chopped veggies, salt and water.
  10. Cover and let the veggies cook.
  11. Once the veggies are semi cooked…… that is they are half cooked. Add the cream. Give a stir.
  12. Cover again and simmer the veggies till they are done.
  13. Don’t forget to check the veggies after occasionally.
  14. Add more water if the water dries up and if the veggies are still to be cooked.
  15. If using paneer, then add the paneer once the veggies are cooked. Simmer without the lid for 2 minutes.
  16. You can also garnish mix vegetable dish with fried paneer cubes. Otherwise simply garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  17. Serve mix vegetables dish hot with pooris, parathas, kulcha or chapatis.
