Mix vegetables with grated coconut

Dear All,

Mix vegetable with coconut gravy

Hope everyone had a wonderful time this diwali. This was my first diwali after 3 yrs which i celebrated with my family and friends so was very much special. Things are very much settled down here so now you'll see me active. I have already started dropping by my fellow friends blogs but still i have lots to catch up, so please dont mind if I am a little late.

The recipe I present you today is a very simple one and is perfect with rotis or phulkas. The most important ingredients here is grated coconut. I have always loved the taste of coconut in curries and dry veggies, it not only enhances the taste but also gives a unique flavor which is sure seduce your tastebuds. The combination of veggie I have used are carrots, green beans and green peas but you can use any combination.

Mix veggie with coconut

Ingredients :-
1/2 cup carrots chopped
1/2 cup green beans chopped
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1 big onion finely sliced
1/2 cup grated coconut
2 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
2 medium green chillies finely chopped
Salt to taste
2 tbsp coriander finely chopped

Procedure :-
  • Heat oil in a nonstick pan, add in mustard seeds, cumin seeds, green chillies and onions.
  • Saute onions for 2 to 3 mins until soft.
  • Add in the veggies, cumin powder, salt, turmeric powder, sugar and grated coconut.
  • Cover and cook on slow to medium gar for 25 to 30 mins, DONOT add water, the vegetables need to get cooked in steam itself.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped coriander on top and serve hot with rotis or phulkas.
  • Enjoy!!

In past few weeks many of my blogger buddies have passed awards to me, I thank you all for your love and support. I will acknowledge the awards very soon!

  43. Love this combo. Try mixing this with left-over rice(you can make something like lime-rice and then mix this sabzi along with it). I do that sometimes for dinner(whenever I feel lazy to cook something new);P My hubby has never guessed that it's just leftover stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  44. We normally make this with just green beans, it is a simple yet great recipe. Will have to try it with some other vegetables like you have used. Glad to know you had a good diwali back home.
