the best part of this mix veg curry recipe is that you can use spare veggies that are in your kitchen and make a one pot tasty mix veg gravy.

i also make another variation of mix veg curry which is totally different than this one and is rich too – fried mix veg sabji recipe. in the fried mix veg recipe, the veggies are fried but the recipe posted here does not have fried veggies. the vegetables are cooked in their juices. this takes a little longer but the result is great. i often make this when we want to have something comforting with chapatis.

being vegetarians, we have lots of veggies in our diet. i have shared many other different types of gravies made with mix vegetables like.

few such mix veg curry recipes are:

this mixed veg curry recipe goes very well with chapatis but also tastes good with pooris or parathas. you can also have mix veg curry with some steamed rice. you can also add paneer in this mix vegetable recipe.

  1. I tried this recipe when I had no time and the guests were about to come suddenly

    It was awesome yummy so easy

  2. Hi mam
    I tried ur recipe n it turned so good. Thanks a lot for that.
    Another thing I wanted to ask is that should I double the ingredients for 10 servings as I have to cook for 10 persons.

    Pratibha5 stars

    • Welcome Pratibha. You can add double but add all the spices using method of approximation or andaaz. gravy recipes are difficult to double. you need to adjust the proportion of spices and spice powders.

  3. I made a double batch of this a few weeks ago and have been eating on it since. Unlike other recipes that I need to try a few times to get right (due to my skillset not the recipe), this one cooked up perfect the first try. It’s a really easy recipe. I like that a lot of the recipes are now including a firm measurement versus just size for things like onions and tomatoes. “1 medium onion or 1/2 a cup finely chopped.” I’m making this again this weekend in an even bigger batch.5 stars

    • thanks a lot nicole. some recipes are forgiving and can be easily doubled or adjusted with ingredients less or more. i started mentioning the cup measurement after a few readers gave feedback on the size of onions, tomatoes, potatoes etc – that a size varies and what may be small to one may be medium to someone else.

  4. HI Dassana
    This is a lovely simple recipe. Would it taste very different if the vegetables are cooked in a pressure cooker & added to the onion tomato mixture? Just to save time….4 stars

  5. Hmmm m looks yummy. I will try it at sunday but please let ne know how much all ingredients ned for 15 servings

    • chaitali, increase the ingredients by 6 times proportionately. this will give 16 to 18 servings. also you can add spice powders more or less as per your preferences.

  6. Since a looong time was looking for a good mix veg recipe but none ever tempted me enough to make me try make it….until I read this recipe. I collected all ingredients and started making the recipe following your recipe exactly but I decided will skip water, and cream and made the recipe….towards the end I stir fried paneer and capsicum and added, it is the best mix veg recipe I have ever eaten, thanks so much Dassana for sharing…God bless you.

    Ps I wanted to rate it 5 * but it does not let me do so3 stars

  7. Hi
    I just wanted to know that can’t we add green vegies like lady finger, brinjal n all..?

  8. Hi!! I have been trying a few of your recepies recently.. Your recepies are simple, easy to make and finger licking tasty!!! Just live your site.. Thank you 🙂4 stars

  9. Nice one. I was looking for this Indian recipe for sometime. Thanks! I hope, it’s authentic. Best,

    • yes, lauren you can add coconut milk. add toward the end and just give a stir. then switch off the flame. the coconut milk will give a nice coconut flavor and taste to this dish.

  10. Thanks for Sharing the details how to prepare Mix Veg Curry. I will try this in this week-end.

    • in this recipe the cream gives a nice sweet taste. yogurt will give a slightly sour taste. so i don’t suggest to add yogurt. use malai (from the top of the boiled milk), if you don’t have cream.
