  • 1 medium-sized beetroot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium-sized potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium-sized green Capsicum, chopped
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, 2 cloves of garlic,1 green chili, 2 green cardamoms, and 1 cinnamon stick ground into a fine paste
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Garam Masala powder
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. sunflower oil, olive oil, or any vegetable oil

Step by Step:

  1. Heat the cooking oil in a large pan or Kadai at medium flame. Once the oil is sufficiently hot, add mustard seeds and allow them to crackle completely. Add the chopped onions and sauté for 1 minute.
  2. Add the paste that you have prepared by mixing the whole and dry spices and sauté for 2 more minutes.
  3. When the oil begins to leave the sides of the pan or Kadai, put the flame on simmer and add the powdered spices one after another. Mix thoroughly to blend with the paste and the oil for a minute. Take care not to burn the spices by maintaining a very low flame.
  4. Next, add the diced tomatoes and blend in nicely until tomatoes are soft and oil starts separating from mixture (1 to 2 minutes).
  5. Add all the chopped and diced vegetables one after another and mix thoroughly to coat with the spices and tomato paste in the pan.
  6. Leave the pan covered with an airtight lid to enable cooking of vegetables in steam. After 5 to 6 minutes, remove the lid and mix the vegetables nicely. You can add water at this stage, then mix well, cover, and cook for another 2 minutes. Shut the flame off and serve hot with Rotis or Rice.
