Mixed Vegetable Curry

Print version of 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.

    HI sailu garu,

    Another yummy receipe from you.
    I have a question what is ” kitchen king masala


    please clarify me .
    I posted a comment in Dal…saying i want to know the recipe of “KAKINADA KAJALU”…waiting for ur reply.

    Thanks,
    Sudha Balaji

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      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.

      • sudha

        Thanks for the reply Sailu garu…

  • http://www.asankhana.blogspot.com notyet100

    perfect with rice,..

  • Maria

    It`s a perfect recipe

  • Saritha

    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.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Thank you, Sarita. :) Those quotations are from my desktop calender ‘Mottos for Success’.

  • Sharada

    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.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Sure you can substitute tamarind or lemon juice. Thanks for the appreciation. :)

    Aww nice one.. lovely pic

  • sumitra

    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 !

  • monica

    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.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Do try this recipe with Kitchen King Masala. If not available, omit it.

  • http://rediffmail.com Maria

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

  • Padma

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

    Thanks in advance

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Badshah and Everest are good.

  • Janaki

    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!!

  • N.DURGAPRASAD

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

  • Aishu Vineet

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

  • Aishwarya Bai

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

  • Bar99047

    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?

    • Guest

      There is a little common sense that is needed

  • ceecee

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

    • http://sailusfood.com/ Sailu | Indian Food

      Sorry for the confusion. The ingredients which call for “roasting in 2 tsps oil’ need to be ground to a paste.
