Vegetables in Milk Gravy


I am little bored with preparing Tomato or Onion based gravies to serve with Chapati. Some time back, I tried vegetables with Masala and milk alone. I didn’t like its taste much and so didn’t prepare it again.

When I came across Green Peas in Milk gravy in Tarla Dalal’s website, got very excited and prepared immediately with mixed vegetables and adjusting to my taste. Though this is a milk based gravy, Tomatoes and Onions are used but in small quantities. We liked its taste and decided to prepare this often.



Ingredients:

  • Mixed Vegetables 1 cup (Peas, Carrot and Beans)
  • Onion (small) 1
  • Ginger-Garlic Paste 1 tsp
  • Chilli Powder ½ tsp
  • Coriander Powder ½ tsp 
  • Cumin Powder ¼ tsp
  • Garam Masala 1/8 tsp
  • Kasoori Methi ¼ cup
  • Milk 1 ¼ cups
  • Maida ½ tsp
  • Cream 1 tsp
  • Cloves 2
  • Cumin and Aniseeds 1/8 tsp each
  • Butter and Oil

To grind:

  • Tomato (medium) 1
  • Onion (small) 1

Preparation:

Cut Tomatoes into four halves. Chop Onion into pieces. Chop Vegetables into medium pieces lengthwise.

Method:

  • Heat little in a Pan. Add chopped Onions and fry till translucent. Now add chopped Tomatoes and fry till its skin separates. Keep it aside to cool and then grind.
  • Pressure cook the Vegetables for one whistle.
  • Heat Butter and Oil in a Pan. When hot, add Cloves, Cumin and Aniseeds. When the seeds crackle, add the Ginger-Garlic Paste and chopped Onions.
  • When Onions turn slightly brown, add Tomato-Onion Paste. Fry till the Oil separates. Now add the cooked Vegetables, Kasoori Methi and all the Powders.
  • Mix well. Fry for a while and then add Maida mixed in 1 ¼ cup of Milk and Salt. Allow to boil.
  • When it is almost done, add Garam Masala and Cream. Mix well. Boil for few more minutes and then serve.

Serves: 2
Serve with Chapati or any Indian Bread.

Notes: Cauliflower can also be added. Adding cream is optional.
