Mixed Vegetable Curry

Posted by PicasaI have got many left over vegetables in my refrigerator. I want to put them to good use and prepared this mixed vegetable curry. When I was making Tomato paneer I observed that adding onion paste to the dish will give very good taste and consistency to the dish. So I used onion paste in this curry and the result was very good..

Onion -1 large chopped
Carrot chopped-1/2 cup
Cauliflower florets-1/2cup
Beans chopped-1/2cup
Tomato-1small and any vegetables of your choice
Coriander powder-11/2tsp
Cumin powder-3/4tsp
Turmeric powder-pinch
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder-2-3tsps(Adjust as per your taste)
Grated ginger-1/2tsp
Cumin seeds-1tsp

1)Add 1 tbsp oil in a wide bottomed vessel and fry the onion till it is brown and cool it completely before making it to a fine paste.
2)Now add 2 tbsp oil in the same pan and add cumin seeds.
3)When they start spluttering add onion paste and fry for a while.
4)Now add grated ginger and fry till it turns brown in colour.
5)Now add all the chopped vegetables except tomato and cook them on medium flame for nearly 10 minutes with covered lid by adding 1 cup of water
6)Now add turmeric powder, coriander powder and cumin powder.
7)Add  tomatoes, salt , red chilli powder and cook on medium flame till all the vegetables are cooked and till you get the desired consistency.
8)Switch off the flame and add cream.
9)Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with hot rice or chapathi.
