Kadai Vegetables Curry | Veg Curry for Roti

Kadai Vegetables, a delicious curry made from mix of veggies as side dish for roti, chapathi or any indian flat bread. It's one of our favorite side dish for chapathi without any coconut based masala. I grew up eating lot of coconut based curries(you know what that's the typical south tamilnadu food style), all other curries are mostly got introduced to me from restaurant or friends, if any tried out curries from restaurant is delicious, then immediately i have the urge to replicate that in my kitchen and this is one among them. In the past, i had tweaked this and that in the recipe whenever i had made this to get that perfect taste and for past one year this is being my standard recipe without any change. If you do like restaurant style kadai vegetable curry, give it a try, it would be awesome!!

* I have used potato, carrot, beans, broccoli, beetroot, capsicum.

First cut all the veggies(carrot, potato, beans, beetroot) into thin stripes, half of the onions into small pieces and the remaining into small squares, cut the capsicum into small squares.Put the ingredients listed under "To grind" into the mixie jar and grind into smooth paste.Heat the oil in a sauce pan, add cinnamon, cloves and cardamon into it and fry for 30 secs.Then add the onions and  saute till it became translucent. Next add the ginger garlic paste and saute till it's aromatic, then add the veggies (carrot, potato, beans, beetroot).Saute the veggies in the oil for few mins and then add the tomato puree, spices(turmeric,red chili & coriander powder) ,sugar & salt.Mix it all well together and then add the enough water and cook the vegetables.When the vegetables are half cooked, add the broccoli and then let all cook until tender. In the mean time, in a another pan, saute the cubed onions and capsicum with pinch of salt until it's slightly softened and keep it aside.Once the veggies are all cooked, add the onions and capsicum. Mix it well, then add the fresh cream & garam masala. Finally crush the kasturi methi in between palms and add into it. Let is simmer for few mins and switch off the flame.Tasty Kadai Vegetables is ready to serve.
  •  Instead of cutting the veggies into stripes, you can cut them into small pieces.
  • Adjust the spices as per your liking, the given quantity is for mild spice.
  • After added the cream, don't let the curry boil vigorously, it may split. Let it comes to light boil and switch off the flame.
  • Broccoli cooks quickly so added lately in the curry.
  • You can use any of your favorite veggies and make this curry. 
  • Peas and cauliflower are good for this curry.
  • If you don't have cream, add few more cashews while grinding tomato puree
