  • 1 Cup Cauliflower separate florets
  • 1 Cup Broccoli separate florets

Spices

  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp Garam masala

For Tempering

  • 1 tsp Oil
  • 2 tsp Ghee
  • 1 no Green chilli

Instructions
 

  • Wash, peel (if necessary), and chop the vegetables into bite-sized pieces for even cooking.

Cook the vegetables

  • Steam cook the vegetables. The vegetables should not be over cooked. If you press it with your fingers, it should mash.

Sauté the Aromatics

  • Heat oil or ghee in a large pan. Add cumin seeds and let them sauté and then add green chilli. Green chilli will give a nice flavour and spiciness to the recipe.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and sauté until the raw smell goes off.  Instead of ginger garlic paste you can also add minced  ginger and garlic.
  • At this stage add finely chopped onions. Sauté until it turn transparent. Do not caramalise the onions.
  • If using tomatoes, add them after the hard vegetables have partially cooked, allowing them to soften and integrate into the mix.

Spice it Up

  • Stir in the ground spices (turmeric, coriander, red chili powder, garam masala, cumin seeds powder) and a required amount of salt into the pan.
  • Mix and sauté everything together well to release their flavours.
  • Add the steam cooked vegetables and mix gently. Sprinkle water and cook for around five minutes. This helps the vegetables to absorb the flavours.
  • If the vegetables are not steam cooked, then add the hard vegetables like carrot, potato first and then cauliflower, beans next and finally capsicum, peas at the last.
  • Pour in a little water, cover the pan, and let the vegetables simmer on a low flame until they're cooked through but still hold their shape.

Finish with Garam masala

  • Stir in garam masala towards the end of cooking for an aromatic lift. Adjust seasoning with salt.

Garnish and Serve

  • Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the cooked sabzi. Serve hot with flatbreads like chappathi, naan, or with rice as part of a larger meal.

Notes

  • Add dash of lemon juice for added zest.
  • If the vegetables are not steam cooked, add them in the order of the time they take to cook.
  • I have used made this sabzi with the assorted vegetables left. You can add beans, peas, potatoes too.
  • Adjust the spices to your taste bud and add more if you are adding other vegetables too.
