This is a popular traditional dish in the northern part of India.  Its name refers to a creamy dish mixed with vegetables and aromatic spices cooked in a mildly flavored sauce.  This delicious curry is quick to make and tastes awesome. It can be served with green pulao, spinach raita and wheat bread/nan, which makes a complete meal.  It is a source of vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and fiber. We will use masala, which is a mixture of several spices, to enhance the taste and aroma of the food.

Makes 4 servings

Cooking/preparation time: 20-25 minutes

 

Ingredients

 

3/4 cup raw cauliflower florets

1/2 cup raw green peas

1/2 cup raw diced green beans

1/2 cup raw diced carrots

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup low-fat yogurt

2 tablespoons tomato ketchup

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger

1¼ teaspoons curry powder

½ teaspoon crushed red pepper

 

 

 

 

Method:

  1. Steam all the vegetables in a covered vegetable steamer basket with just enough water to cover the base. Steam for about 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  2. In a shallow pan, heat the olive oil over low heat.
