How to Make A Creamy Medley of Veggies

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat a huge vessel/stainless dish/crock-pot on the stove and add 3 tbsp of coconut oil to it. Once the oil heats up, stir in all the vegetables (cubed/ slightly bigger chunks) starting with carrots, potatoes and ending with red bell peppers, one at a time and fry for about 10 min.
  2. Turn off the stove,transfer this vegetable mixture into another dish and continue cooking with the same crock-pot/any huge vessel.
  3. Now add 2 tbsp of coconut oil to the pot. Add cumin seeds and wait for them to crackle. Once done, add ginger and garlic and fry for a couple of minutes until all the raw smells go away.
  4. Stir in onions and fry till translucent for a couple of minutes. Then add the tomatoes and fry for a couple of more minutes.
  5. Now add chill powder, turmeric powder and salt and fry for a minute before adding yogurt, half-and-half and cashew/walnut mixture.
  6. Once it starts boiling, stir in the vegetable mixture and let it simmer for 10 min. Now add garam masala and a pinch of sugar to enhance the taste.
  7. Finally, turn off the heat when the entire mixture had boiled well and sprinkle cilantro on top before serving.
  8. Tips:
    1. Keep stirring as the vegetables have an annoying tendency to stick to the base of the pots :)
    2. I used walnut paste: more healthy but you can use cashew paste: it adds more flavor.
    3. You are welcome to even add a pinch of "Kitchen King Masala" which can be found in the spices aisle at any Indian Store.
