Mixed Vegetable curry

My mom called me a couple of day back and gave me this recipe. It really delicious. Its simple and is a different way of making a vegetable dish. I like it a lot. Hope you do too.


7-8 methi seeds
curry leaves 5-6
green chillies slit-3
Oil 1 tblsp
Vegetables cut up:cauliflower, capsicum, peas, potatoes etc (anything but corn)
1 cup Coconut milk (the think milk, remove thick coconut cream)
1 cup tomato puree (i just puree one large tomato and 1/2 cup canned diced tomato in a blender)
1 tsp cornflour
salt to taste
Garlic pods-4-5
Heat oil. Add methi seeds, green chillies and curry leaves. Let it sputter.

Add vegetables. Stir fry on high heat. Add tomato puree. Cover and cook till vegetables are done. Meanwhile mix corn flour in coconut milk. The corn flour prevents the coconut milk from separating out in the presence of the acidic tomato puree. Add coconut milk into the mix. stir. Heat 1 tsp oil separately. Saute garlic in it till golden. Add to vegetables and cover immediately. Serve hot with rice.
