DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and peel (or scrub) the potatoes.
  • Cut into small pieces and microwave them, covered, for about 6 minutes until half cooked.
  • Prepare and cut all other vegetables into small pieces.
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan on medium heat.
  • Sauté cumin seeds, garlic and onions; stir until onions are translucent.
  • Put the potatoes and vegetables in a large baking dish.
  • Mix in the sautéed spices and the remaining seasonings (except garam masala).
  • Bake covered at 400°F until the vegetables are tender (about ½ hour).
  • (Stir the vegetables in between and sprinkle water if necessary.) Bake uncovered at 450°F for another 10 minutes to get a roasted look.
  • Stir in garam masala.
  • Garnish as desired and serve.
  • Variation: Stir in 1 tablespoon of butter or clarified butter (ghee) for flavor before serving.
  • Microwave Method: Cook the vegetables in the microwave oven, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Then combine everything else and put in the oven as in step 4 for a roasted look.
  • Healthy Alternative: Add a chopped tomato towards the end.
