Veggie Masala

    30 mins

    This is a dish that uses all the typical veggies found all over the country. It's delish with a ghee wala parontha. To save time, I microwave veggies for this quick dinner dish. Great served with rice or naan.

    Great blend of spices! Very aromatic! I didn't pre-cook the veggies in the microwave, but started cooking from the point 3, and added the veggies (omitted the beans and added eggplant, zucchini, pepper, kohlrabi) to the oil-onion-spice mix in the pan, and let all the ingredients simmer until the potatoes were done (about an hour). Very delicious served with basmati rice and pita bread!  -  14 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is another good recipe we've added to our rotation. I throw in red kidney or garbanzo beans and serve it over rice to make it a one dish, complete-protein main meal. I also use fresh ginger, increase the spices, and add more liquid (sometimes yogurt).  -  28 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The dish has a good taste but I added extra spices and water so It would be saucy to serve over rice. Next time I will also add chickpeas or some other beans.  -  09 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
