3 isn’t a crowd here but a perfectly harmonious vegetable for lunch.
Indian food may considered largely to be rich, heavy, too spicy and so on. Well not the whole truth. On regular days we prefer to eat our normal vegetables with plain fulkas. This dry vegetable preparation is one those dishes. Perfect for lunch and tiffin too. Gobi (Patta-gobi / Cabbage) when married with Mutter (Green Peas) and Aloo (Potato) brings out amazing harmony.
- Patta Gobi – almost half of a medium gobi, chopped
- Mutter – 1 bowl
- Aloo – 1, diced
- Tomato – 1, chopped
- Green Chilles – 2, broken
- Garlic – 3 to 4 cloves, sliced
- Karipatta – 10 to 12 leaves
- Rai – 1 teaspoon
- MOMmade Haldi Powder – Half teaspoon
- MOMmade Kitchen King Mazala – 1 tablespoon
- Salt to Taste
Start by taking around 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan. Add rai and let it crackle. Add garlic, green chillies and karipatta. Fry for a few seconds and add the chopped tomato.
To the tomatoes add MOMmade Haldi Powder and salt. Cover and cook for 2 minutes. Salt helps tenderise the tomatoes instantly.
Add in the veges. All 3 – patta gobi, mutter and aloo cook at a similar time. Mix it all up and sprinkle a tablespoon of MOMmade Kitchen King Mazala. Do not mix. (When any masala including red chilli powder gets in touch with the bottom of the pan it tends to stick during the process of cooking. Hence I avoid mixing masala immediately. I let it all cook for a while and then give it a nice mix)
Cover and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or till the veges are cooked properly. You can add a splash of water if the veges are sticking to the pan. Once they are well done, uncover, give it a nice mix and let it cook for another minute or two.
Well, not sure how, but, I lost the last 2 images of mixing it all up and final dish. But I can assure you this simple non spicy vegetable will be a good lunch idea if teamed up with plain fulkas and a small serving of aam ka achar.
Kitchen King Mazala is a good versatile masala. It can be used everyday in our regular cooking. It is mild, flavourful with good aroma. It also has red chilly added so no need to add extra chilly powder. Well that’s your choice again, depending on how spicy you like. One thing is assured and that is – Yumminess.
BE YUMMY. BE HEALTHY.
