I love trying out different combinations with a variety of vegetables. Apart from having a number of nutrients in the same dish, it also provides the colour factor to make it look appetising enough for the kids.
1 small broccoli, cut into equal sized florets
1 carrot, cut into strips
5-6 french beans, cut into diamonds
1 potato, chopped
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 whole red chilli
1 bay leaf
salt to taste
a pinch of sugar
3 tblsp cooking oil
Heat oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds, bay leaf and the whole red chilli. When they splutter, add the potatoes and after stirring for a minute, add the rest of the vegetables. Season with salt and the pinch of sugar and cook on low heat till they are half done.
Add the turmeric and cumin powders, stir and cook till the vegetables are completely done. It is important to keep stirring in between so that they do not stick to the bottom of the pan.
