Mixed Vegetable Curry



Each time I cook mixed vegetable curry, I tend to tweak and experiment with spices. Today’s recipe is a result of one such experiment. Am quite satisfied with the end result and hence makes an appearance here. :) A versatile dish that makes a decent side with rice, rotis as well as dosas.

      Kitchen King Masala is a versatile spice powder that you can use to season curries and stir fries both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. You will find it Indian grocery stores. I am yet to try Kakinada Kaja at home. I do not have a proper recipe for it right now.

    Sailu, I just wanted to make a comment: In addition to your recipes which I love, I appreciate the quotations you place each time above your posts. Today’s was exceptional. Just wondering — do you write this yourself or do you get it from maybe a website or book? Thanks.

  10. Sharada says:

    This is my favorite one Shailaja Garu, this one is a combination for poori and chapathi. When I make I use little coconut milk and my own spice mix. I am going to try your version this time. I think yours is also good.

    Hello from Fiji, Sailu! I am a new subscriber, English, married to a part Fijian. We love Indian food. Googling for a new way to cook baigan I came across your site, had a good look, and immediately saved it to favourites and subscribed. Question: Would a little Tamarind substitute for Amchur Powder? I am allergic to mangoes :( Great site, Sailu! Kind thoughts, Sue.

  13. sumitra says:

    your blog is wonderful. tried 3-4 recipes from here so far and all of them turned out mouth-watering. Egg Masala was my family’s favourite.

    i see that your blog is powered by wordpress.org. just curious to know if you do everything yourself or you hired a designer. would appreciate the info as i’m looking for a good designer myself.

    Hello,
    This looks great even for a mixed veg :)

    The photo is very appetizing and i think i can eat unlimited dosas with such a curry. And kitchen king is my favourite!

    Thanks..

    Sailu,
    Wish you and your family a very happy Deepavali !

  16. monica says:

    Hi Sailu,

    Lovely recipe.Can’t wait to try it. Is it possible to substitute Kitchen king masala with any other masala powder.
    Do you think the recipe will turn out decent enough if I omit the kitchen king masala all together.

    A very Happy Deepavali to you and your family.

  17. Maria says:

    I`ve tried the recipe without kitchen king masala. It was fair enough. I feel that adding coconut would add to the taste.

  18. Padma says:

    Hi Sailu,
    I saw different brands of Kitchen King masala. Which brand do you suggest?

    Thanks in advance

  19. Janaki says:

    I am a very frequent visitor to your website and have tried a lot of recipes which are all our family favorites now. This recipe is added to that list – just tried it today and it came out superb! I love your step by step instructions… no one can go wrong!!

  20. N.DURGAPRASAD says:

    hai Sailu,
    you have asked to add ground paste which ground paste? it is
    not mentioned in this mixed veg. recipe.

  21. Aishu Vineet says:

    Tried it out and it turned out very good. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

  22. Aishwarya Bai says:

    I tried this one and it came out amazing. Thanks for sharing a delicious recipe!

  23. Bar99047 says:

    Aren’t the cooking times mentioned in this recipe completely knocking down the vegetables? They are dead and soft as paste by the time curry is ready?

  25. ceecee says:

    your “add the ground paste” at paragraph 3 is confusing. What paste? You already added the ginger-garlic paste at para 1. Pl. clarify.

  26. sirisha says:

    hi sailu,
    Today i tried this came excellent….Thank u

  27. cynthia says:

    this recipe does not seem right, rather incomplete. you’ve said 1 tbsp of coconut and that is far too less to give any thickness to the curry. there is nothing else in the recipe to compensate for the thickness. please suggest. Since i do not have the Kings masala pdr, Im using some regular vegetable curry powder.15-20 mins will overcook the veggies
