Sauteed Mixed Veggies (Traditional Indian Style)

You can prepare a ultimate dry curry by sauteing Potato, Bell Peppers/Capsicum and Carrot all together followed by spicing up with red chilly flakes. This makes a amazing tasty dish which can be enjoyed with Rasam or any dal and hot rice. A big Thanks to my father as I learnt this dish from him. Very easy steps to be followed but chopping the veggies takes more time :-). 
Why can't you give it a try ??

  • 3-4 small size bell peppers/capcicum (mix 2-3 different colors of bell peppers, to give  colorful look to your dish)
  • one small size potato
  • 2-3 big size carrots
  • half onion
  • 1/2 fresh green chilly
  • a pinch of turmeric/haldi
  • 1 tsp red chilly flakes
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1-2 tbsp of cooking oil
  • salt as required

 For Seasoning:
  • 1 tsp urad dal
  • 1/2 tsp mustard
  • 10-12 curry leaves/kadi patta
  • 1-2 tbsp oil
  • 1-2 dry red chilly chopped into halves
How to Prepare ?
  • Chop the veggies and keep it aside. (you can chop them into cubes or thin stripes of length 1-2 inches.
  • Heat oil in a pan and prepare the seasoning.First add mustard seeds,urad dal and red chilly. After the mustard seed pops out add curry leaves, fry for few secs.
  • Now add chopped onion, turmeric powder and green chilies. saute for 3-4 mins.
  • Add chopped bell peppers and saute for 2-3 minutes.Now add chopped potatoes, saute all together for 2 mins .
  • Add chopped carrots. Give a nice mix. Continue sauteing until all the veggies are completely cooked.In a regular intervals,check the pan and sprinkle some water if required to avoid burning.

  • When the veggies are almost cooked , add salt , red chilly flakes and cumin powder to the sauteed veggies followed by nice mix.
  • Switch off the flame once the veggies are completely cooked( you can break the veggies using fork and check whether they are cooked or not?)

  • Before you switch off the flame , you can add one tbsp of fresh grated coconut.
  • Chopping the veggies takes more time here as all the chopped veggies should be of same shape and size. Chopping them into thin strips is better as it cooks fast.
