Mixed veg is served in almost all Indian restaurants. The restaurant version of this dish is slightly heavy and creamy. But you can also make a light, colorful and healthy mix veg curry at home with minimal spices.

Choosing vegetables for mix veg curry

There is considerable flexibility in choosing the vegetables to be added. It can include seasonal vegetables and common vegetables like capsicum, cabbage, cauliflower, french beans, peas, carrots, potato, tomato, onion etc.

I have first shallow fried vegetables and then added them to the gravy. You can also cook all of them together for a healthier variation.

There are several other dishes which are equally healthy, similar in composition and are very unique in their taste. These recipes are a great way to use up leftover vegetables in your house.

    Delicious! I added more salt to taste, reduced the chili powder to 3/4 teaspoon . . . and increased the amount of fresh ginger as I always do. I also used coconut milk instead of cream.

  2. Cooking it today; it is just finishing off as I write, but it looks good! Omitted the blender stage as was short of time but by the appearance that omission has not detracted from the effect. Am just reducing it to a thicker consistency. Looking forward to it!
