punjabi mix veg sabzi recipe with step by step photos – delicious north indian style fried mix veg sabji recipe.

mix veg sabji recipe

mix vegetable recipes are made in south india as well as in north india. this mix veg recipe has the typical punjabi flavor and taste to it.

i had seen this recipe on a television show. i tried the recipe at home and it came out really good. the gravy is creamy, mildly sweet and less spiced with a hint of sourness from the tomatoes and yogurt.

the recipe calls for frying the vegetables. alternatively, you could saute the vegetables or also blanch or steam them. since the vegetables are fried and cream is used, the recipe becomes rich in calories. another variation of this recipe is mix vegetable curry recipe where vegetables are not fried but cooked in the gravy.

serve punjabi mix veg sabzi with naan, tandoori rotis or phulkas along with onion-lime salad.
