Vegetable Deewani Handi

This is  a very similar dish to Mixed vegetables. You cook  boiled vegetables in fragrant sauce and served it with paratha or roomali roti. I did not boiled vegetable because I think that boiling and then adding to any curry , vegetables don't absorb that flavor very much. But If you have boiled vegetables on hand and make this curry in jiffy you can do it. Adjust the spices and vegetables as per your taste. Instead of vegetables you can make this with paneer and capsicum or paneer and carrot. But I don't like paneer that much so I avoid when ever I can. Instead I added soya chunks.


2 cups mixed vegetables ( i had cauliflower, carrot, corn, peas, red and green capsicum, soya chunks)
2 onions puree
2 tomato puree
2 tsp ginger, garlic and green chili paste
salt to taste
3 tsp oil

Make powder masala:
10 whole cashews
6 green cardamoms pods
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin and coriander powder
2 tsp kasoori methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
pinch of nutmeg and clove powder
1 tsp Milk powder (if you dont have this you can use milk at the end)


Make powder masala and keep it aside.
In a non stick pan, add oil in it
When heated add onion puree and cook till its dry and changed its color.
Add tomato puree and mix it.
Add all powder masala and ginger , garlic and chili paste and cook it till oil flots on top.
If you are using boiled vegetables don't add too much water, but if you are using raw vegetables add enough water to cook those and add all the vegetables in it.
Add salt and cook  and covered till vegetables are cook.
Adjust the gravy thinkness and if you are using milk, add it now.
Mix it well and served hot with paratha.
I had with paratha and shredded  beetroot , carrot, white radish raita.

Made cutlets / tikki out of left over subji, adding one boiled mashed potato. Make Tikkis and roll it in panko bread crumbs and shallow fry it on both sides.
