Mixed vegetable…

by Sunita on April 5, 2007

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.

This dish is a simple one with broccoli, french beans, carrots and potatoes. It goes well with both rotis and rice.
What’s needed-

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

How to-

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.

Serve hot with rotis or with rice as a side dish. We had ours with rice and dal and fresh salad.

Yummy looking veg medley…I wouldn’t have it with roti, I need some meat with my bread :D but it would make a great sidedish for rice for me, or even on its own instead of salad! Thanks Sunita, I love this recipe.

Hey great minds think alike. You have amixed vegetable here and I posted a Charchari today, that’s how it is called in Assamiya too, or not ?

Sig…it’s a very less time consuming dish and a healthy one at that…do give it a try…

Asha, wish I could send some parathas over to you….

Sandeepa, yes, we do have charcharis but not with your combination…we call your combination of veggies labra and we have it without the mustard.
