Vegetables in Creamy Sauce

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Honeybeee

Quick and easy and definitely better than just boiled veggies! The chillies in it give it a decided character. Great as a side dish to the main course.

I made this for dinner tonight. I substituted the fresh cream with low-fat plain yogurt and the butter with cooking oil. I'm sorry, it didnt turn out as I'd expected. I cooked it in the microwave on HIGH for 18-20 minutes more than the stated time , i.e., after step 6. The French beans were still uncooked. The carrots were about 3/4th cooked. The red chilli powder did give it some taste, but, on the whole, the dish left alot desired... May I suggest to boil the French beans and carrots separately on the stove until they are 3/4th cooked, before tossing them into the dish - i.e., step 2. Also, I'd use a whole cup of yogurt in future instead of just 1/2 cup. This is a nice dish, just requires that the French beans be cooked completely before serving it.
