Mixed Vegetable Curry

Mixed vegetable curry is a delicious traditional North Indian style curry or gravy variety made with an assortment of vegetables of your choice cooked along with spices in a flavourful curry.This mixed vegetable curry or gravy compliments roti, chapati, naan, poori, ghee rice, pulov and even dosas.
To prepare this mix veg curry first begin by sautéing the veggies of your choice in oil until 3/4 cooked.Then add in spices and sauté the onions and tomato paste (a blend of tomatoes, green chilies,ginger, garlic and cashews) until the raw smell dissipates and oil oozes on top.At this stage the sautéed veggies are added and the gravy is diluted with water and further cooked until desired consistency.

The choice of vegetables is your preference here I have used carrots, beans, peas, cauliflower, potatoes and capsicum.
