Mili Jhuli Subzi/Mixed vegetables in spicy gravy

When I found this recipe in the newsletter of Tarla Dalal,I was so sure that Iam gonna try this.It is  a combination of vegetables in a spicy gravy.The spices are not store bought,but freshly ground.That tempted me to give it a try.This is a real comfort food for the harsh wintry nights.


Boiled mixed vegetables - 2 cups(carrots,potatoes,beans,peas,baby corn,cauliflower)

Paneer - 1/2 cup cubed or tofu

Tomatoes - 2 medium chopped into small pieces

Corn flour - 1/2 tsp mixed with 2Tbsp of milk

Salt to taste

Oil - 4 tbsp

To be ground into a paste:

Onion - 1 medium

Thick Poha - 2 tablespoon Soak in water for 5 minutes.Drain and then grind with other ingredients

Coriander seeds - 4tsp

Black pepper - 5 or 6

Cumin seeds - 2tsp

Dry red chillies - 5

Poppy seeds - 1tsp

Cloves - 2

Cinnamon - 2 inch piece

Garlic - 2 or 3 pods

Ginger - 2tsp grated


Heat oil in a skillet.When hot,add the ground paste and saute till raw smell goes off.

Add the chopped tomatoes and saute till the tomatoes are pulpy.

Then add the boiled vegetables,paneer,required amount of salt and 1/2 cup of water.Simmer for 2 minutes.

Now add cornflour mixed with water and simmer for another 5 minutes.

Serve hot with roti.
