Rainbow In and Out

Rainbow Mix-vegetable

HAPPY HOLI to all my visitors and fellow bloggers and to their families...May all the colours of Rainbow fills your life with happiness in this Holi and forever............
On the occassion of this colourful festival, I would like to share this colorful dish which I 've learnt from my mom. She is very creative in cooking and everyone's beloved cook. She used to make this sabji in winter time where we consumed almost all the winter vegetables in one palatte. I love this sabji, it's easy to cook and takes very less time to make. My daughter calls this, "Rainbow vegetable" and she loves it. This dish is very nutritious and delicious at the same time.

While I was making this dish on a cloudy, gloomy day, I found this amazing dual rainbow outside of my window. So rainbow in and out of my kitchen.

Ingredients :
Beet : 1/2 cup(cubed)
Carrot : 1/2 cup(cubed)
Green Beans : 1/2 cup(cubed)
Potato : 1/2 cup (cubed)
Ladies finger/okra/Bhindi : 1/2 cup
Cauliflower : 1/2 cup (cut in small florets)
Green/red/yellow Capsicum : 1/2 cup(cubed)
Green peas : 1/3 cup
Corn : 1/3 cup
Dry red chilli : 1 (break into 2)
Mustard seeds : 2 tsp.
Urad dal : 2 tsp.
Chana dal : 2 tsp.
Curry leaves : 10 nos.
Greeb chillies : 2 (chopped)
Tomato : 1(small-chopped)
Onion : 1 (medium-chopped)
Garlic : 3 cloves (minced)
Turmeric powder : 2 tsp.
Red chilli powder : 2 tsp.
Oil: 2 tbsp.
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for garnishing

Method :
  • Cut all the vegetables in small cube like pieces. Boil first 4 vegetables together until tender not mushy. Drain and keep aside.
  • In a pan, heat 1 tbsp. oil, fry cauliflower, okra and capsicum until done with a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  • In the same pan, heat rest of the oil in full flame. Oil should be real hot. Temper with dry red chilli, curryleaves, urad & chana dal and mustard seeds. After you temper, make the flame to medium. Don't let them burn, when seeds crackle, add onions , garlic, green chilli and tomato.
  • stir it for 2-3 minutes, make a paste of it. Add turmeric and chilli powder and all boiled and fried vegetables. Mix everything well, season with salt. Lastly add green peas and corn (if you're using frozen one, if using fresh boil with other veges).
  • Mix well and stir for another 2-3 minutes and you're done. Serve in a bowl and garnish with fresh coriander leaves.

It's a dry preperation. So no water added. Goes well with roti, puri, paratha and it's a good filling for Dosa(rice & lentil pancake)..........
