I keep trying to make something different for my husband’s lunchbox. Few days back, on such a seach, I got this recipe which I had copied from Aayi’s diary. This is a great recipe to finish off left over veggies too.
2 cups vegetables (potato, peas, cauliflower, cabbage, carrot)
3/4 cup onion
1/2 tea spn cumin seeds
2-3 garlic cloves
1/2 tea spn chili powder
A pinch turmeric
1/2 tea spn garam masala
2-3 strands coriander leaves
1/4 cup dry fruits(cashew nuts, raisins)
1/4 cut pineapple
Heat oil and add cumin seeds. Fry for 5-6 seconds and then add garlic, onion. Fry till onion turns brownish. Grind them into a smooth paste.
Heat oil and fry the vegetables for 5-6min. Add the paste, chili powder, turmeric, salt and 1/2 cup water. Cook on a low flame. When the vegetables are cooked, add garam masala, coriander leaves and cook for 2-3mins. Mix dry fruits and pineapple. Cook for another 1 min.
Serve with chapathi or any roti.
Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 25mins
