I learnt this from my mom..Whenever I pack variety rice(lemon,tomato rice etc) as lunch for my husband, i do chapathi with this Veg korma for dinner so that i get a satisfaction of including all the veggies in his diet.

  1. Chopped Vegetables(Carrot,beans, potato,peas) – 1.5 cups
  2. Big onion – 2 nos (Slice cut)
  3. Ginger & garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
  4. Tomato – 1 no (Chopped)
  5. Garam masala powder – 1.5 tsp
  6. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
To Grind:
  1. Grated Coconut – 3 tbsp
  2. Green chilly – 2-3 nos or red chilly powder - 1.5 - 2  tsp
  3. Fried Gram – 1 tsp 
  4. Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
To temper:
  1. Cinnamon – 1 small stick
  2. Cloves – 2 nos
  3. Cardamom – 1 no
  4. Oil – 2 tbsp

Coriander leaves – To garnish


Step 1 : Heat a kadai with 2 tbsp of oil and add the tempering  items  one by one. Add the onions and saute till golden brown., Add G&G paste & saute till raw smell leaves it..Add the tomatoes and cook for a minute till tomato turns mushy.
Step 2: Now add all the chopped vegetables and fry for a minute by adding the required salt.
Step 3: Transfer everything into the cooker adding 1cup of water and pressure cook for 1 or 2 whistles.Meanwhile grind all the items given under “ to grind” to a smooth paste by adding water.
Step 4: Once the veggies get cooked , add the ground mixture to it.Let it boil for 5 – 6 mins in medium flame.Now add the Garam Masala powder and boil for another 5 mins.If the gravy is too thick,add some water.Check for salt.
Finally ,garnish with coriander leaves and serve with Chapathi.

Tastes good with dosa too..
