making masala for mix veg recipe

  • In a kadai or thick bottomed pan, heat oil.
  • add cumin seeds and let them splutter. 
  • then add finely chopped onions and sauté onions till they turn light golden. 
  • then add the ginger-garlic paste. sauté till the raw aroma of both ginger and garlic goes away. 
  • then add the tomatoes. keep on stirring till the tomatoes become soft and pulpy. 
  • the process of frying the tomatoes takes a little longer. if you want to quicken the process, add a pinch of salt to the onion-tomato mixture. fry the tomatoes on a low flame as you don’t want the tomatoes to get burnt.
  • when the mixture becomes smooth and you see oil releasing from the sides, then add turmeric powder, kashmiri red chili powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder. 
  • mix spice powders very well with the onion-tomato mixture.

  • cover again with a lid and simmer the veggies till they are done.
  • don’t forget to check the vegetables occasionally at intervals. 
  • add more water if the water dries up and if the veggies are still to be cooked.
  • once the veggies are cooked and the mix veg sabzi is done, then switch off the flame and add 3 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves. mix well. if using paneer, then add the paneer before you add the coriander leaves and simmer for a few seconds.
