Mixed vegetable curry with cashew paste| Creamy Vegetable Sabzi

Vegetable kurma is a usual thing which we prepare at home frequently. I don’t want to try out the usual one always; we should have variety in our diet so that we feel good when we eat and we can satisfy our taste buds, i think im right. I tried this sabzi once for my lunch. In my house vegetables goes only with me. I used all the available vegetables at home and prepared it for two. So that I can have it for dinner also. It was simple and easy. I tried to make it creamy so used Cashew nut paste with little milk. We can season this recipe with butter also; weight conscious people please avoid it. Here we go in to the recipe.

Vegetables – 1 cup (peas, potato, cauliflower, beans, carrot) Cut all in 1 inch thickness.
Cashew nut paste – 2tbsp (soak cashew nut in milk and grind it in to a thick and smooth paste)
Onion and chili  paste – 3tbsp (grind 1medium size onion and 1 big green chili in to smooth paste)
Tomatoes – 1no (chop it very finely)
Red chili powder-1tsp
Turmeric powder- ½ tsp
Dhania powder-1tsp
Vegetable masala-1tsp
Ginger garlic paste- 1tsp
Sugar a pinch
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Jeera and sombu – 1tsp
Oil/ ghee – 2tbsp or 3tbsp
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan, add jeera and sombu when it starts to splutter add the onion paste fry it till the onion turns brown, now add the tomato fry till the oil leaves the mass. Then add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, dhania powder, and vegetable masala powder.Fry well and then add ginger garlic paste, Nicely fry it in oil till the raw flavors goes well. Now add all the vegetables mix it well, add salt and little water, close the pan and cook for 10 min.
Open the pan and add the cashew nut paste and little sugar. Mix it well. Keep in sim for 5min or till the oil leaves the sides.This is a nice thick gravy which will be coated fully on the vegetables.
Serve hot with chapatti or phulkas
