Kadai Vegetables

This recipe is adapted from Mallika badrinath's recipe..Iam  a great fan of her recipes.I have a lmost all of her cookbooks.Actually this recipe calls for paneer and babycorn..Since i didnt have babycorn,I omitted it and I substituted shallow fried extra-firm tofu instead of fried paneer.Good news is that it contains no garlic.So my dh liked it a lot!!

Ingredients:

A cup of diced and boiled mixed vegetables (carrot,beans,cauliflower,peas and potato)

Capsicum - 1

Garam Masala - 1 tsp

Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp

Coriander powder - 1 tsp

Oil - 4tbsp

Salt to taste

Coriander leaves for garnishing

Fry the following in 2tsp of oil and grind it into a smooth paste:

Onion - 1

Tomatoes - 1

Cashew nuts - 5

Method:

Heat oil in  a pan.Add the cumin seeds.when they splutter add, the tomatoes, capsicum,green chillies  and saute for 2 minutes.

Add the boiled vegetables,turmeric powder and coriander powder.

Then add the paste,garam masala,tofu and required amount of salt.
