Mixed Vegetables In Cashew Sauce

My cooking has changed a lot in last couple of months. I tend to make more simpler dishes these days. In a day, I get about 30mins-1hr sometimes to cook. Whenever I cook, I try to make it in more quantity and eat left overs next day. But there are some days when we crave for something special. Last week, we had one such day. After Ishaan went to bed, I stepped into kitchen thinking what to make. I wanted something masaledar. I checked in fridge and saw few vegetables, begging to be used. So I started putting together this dish. Final outcome was very very delicious, thick gravy – somewhat on the lines of butter chicken. We had it for dinner and next day at lunch.

1 cup each of capsicum(bell pepper), potatoes, cauliflower
2 tbl spn cashews
1/2 cup onion
1 tea spn kasoori methi
1 tea spn garam masala
1 tea spn chilli powder
1/2 cup tomato
1 tea spn cumin seeds
1 tea spn ginger paste
1 tea spn garlic paste

Heat two cups water and add cashews, 1/4 cup onion and tomatoes. Cook for few minutes. Grind to smooth paste.
Heat oil and add cumin seeds. When they start popping, add onion, ginger-garlic paste and fry for few minutes. Add all the vegetables, chilli powder, garam masala, salt. Mix well. Cover and let it cook on a low heat for few minutes (add little water if required). Add kasoori methi, mix well.
Now add the cashew paste. Cook till it starts boiling and gets thick.
Serve with rotis/chapatis or flavored rice.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 25mins

  1. Hi Shilpa, Thanx for such an easy and wonderful recipe.I’ve been following your site from last 2 years but I am writing to you for the first time.All your dishes looks and tastes yummy :)I’ve tried quite a bit of them.
    Shilpa,as you know so much about cooking and stuff,was just wondering if you can provide me with the recipe of simple vegetable sandwiches.I know it must be sounding foolish,but the thing is that I had these sandwiches somewhere in a resturant,and the taste is still in my mouth,it was awesome.There was some cream or dressing in it which was a l’il sweet,and was mixed with some lettuce & shredded carrots…the cream was not thick though.I tried to find that cream in many stores like walmart,save-on,safeway but all I ended up with the wrong product.Can you please let me know the name of tht cream.I’ll really appreciate.Thanx in advance..

  2. Very easy receip, wish i had seen this yesterday when i was breaking my head to come up with a veg curry in a very short time. Thanks for sharing

  3. Its amazing how u manage work and Ishaan and still manage to cook such amazing recipes!!! And to top it all actually blog about the food you cooked!!!gr8

  4. Instead of vegis I tried with Kidney beans and turned out amazing…. Thank you Shilpa for a very simple and heart filling recipe

  5. This is a keeper recipe. I made this along with ghee rice – awesome combo. Do you think if I use chicken instead of veggies for this recipe it would come out good?

  6. Hi Shilpa, I tried this last nite for dinner…njoyed it! simple but no compromise on taste. I however added in zucchini & mushroom instead of gobhi.

  7. Tried this receipe. Replaced potatoes with kohlrabi (to cut down carbs – Navil kosu in Kannada) served with Lemon rice with nuts. They complemented well. Turned out to be a great item for our Deepawali dinner. Thank you for your great receipe. I am sure, I will try okra receipe next.

  8. Hi Shilpa,

    I tried this today & the taste was awesome but did not manage to get such beautiful dark colour fr the dish.Is it bcoz of the garam masala.Which brand do u prefer.

  9. hi,

    i tried this recipe today and it came out really well, thank you soo much 🙂 but the colour wasnt red, and i din’t wanna add too much chilli pwdr coz of the spice. Added some paprika for colour, still not as good as yours..

  10. Hi Shilpa,
    I made this today and it tastes nice.
    Can you please tell me how you managed to get that nice red colour in the last picture, since the second last picture doesnt look that red. I would love to get that color too.
