Mixed Vegetable Masala

Mixed Vegetable Masala created by dianegrapegrower

This is a simplified version of a basic vegetable curry. It's hearty and filling, reasonably spicy but not overpowering. If you are feeling decadent upgrade the coconut milk to full fat. ;)

ingredients

directions

  • Pulse ginger and garlic in a blender or food processor until they are both finely chopped. Add the tomatoes with the juice and the cayenne pepper. Pulse together until combined but don't let it turn into a puree. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a nonstick pan or large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened. About 10 minutes. Stir in potatoes, carrots, garam masala, and chili powder. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking.
  • Add cauliflower tomato mixture, and 1/2 cup water. Simmer for 20 minutes uncovered.
  • Remove from heat, stir in coconut milk, and season with pepper.

    Delicious and easy to make. We were very pleased with this recipe. Didn't have the liquid issue some reviewers had and we cooked uncovered as recipe indicated. Found the amount of chili and cayenne to be great. I do agree that adding a green vegetable is a nice addition. (We substituted broccoli for the cauliflower because that's what we had in the fridge.) I also threw the onion in with the ginger and garlic (by accident) but it luckily still turned out great. We added a can of chick peas to the recipe to increase the protein content and at the masala over rice as our whole meal. I looked at a lot of other Vegetable Masala recipes online, many of which called for a pressure cooker or included microwaving some of the vegetables. This was a really delicious and easy recipe without any of that nonsense and I highly recommend it.

    I didn't find as much of a problem with the liquid issue because I diced the potatoes quite small. I think I would prefer to use 2 fresh tomatoes with more water instead of tinned, but that's just me, I felt the tomatoes over powered a bit. I also left out the chili powder because I have some young diners sharing this with me - and it's plenty spicy enough with just the cayenne if you prefer mild. Turned out nicely, thanks for posting!

    Made it just as stated and it was hot but not too hot (but then, we like it spicy). I agree that there was too little liquid but all vegetables were done just in time (before scorching). It would indeed be nice with a green vegetable and I'll make this again with broccoli, string beans and more coconut milk. Thanks for posting.
