Kadai Sabji

Hi All,its been a very long time since i blogged.I've been to my home town after a long gap,celebrated pongal there and it was a big vacation for me.

Now i'm posting this kadai (veg) sabji recipe which i've tried recently and got gud reviews from my hubby.This is usually prepared in dry style and little more spicier than the usual veg kurumas.This measure serves 2 person and here u go.

Ingredients :

1.Veggies like carrot,potato,peas,capsicum(any color),beans etc - 2 cups

2.Onion puree - 1/2 cup

3.Tomato puree- 3/4 cup

4.Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 spoon

5.Garam Masala - 1/4 spoon

6.Kasuri methi - 1/2 spoon

7.Oil - 2 spoon

8.Butter - 1 spoon

9.Cumin - 1/2 spoon

10.Salt  to taste

11.Green chillies - 2(slit)

12.Red chilli powder - 1 spoon

13.Turmeric powder - 1/4 spoon


1.Pressure cook all veggies.Capsicum has to be fried.

2.Heat butter n oil in a kadai,add cumin and let it raise.Then comes in the green chillies,onion puree and ginger garlic paste.

3.Cook in a low flame.Later add turmeric powder,red chilli powder,garam masala powder and tomato puree one by one.

Note:The spice level is up to u.U can lessen it,when u do for kids.

4.Saute it nicely.Tomato takes little more time to get cooked,may take 15 minutes or more.So cook this carefully and patiently.

5.When it is done,add all boiled veggies,salt and kasuri methi.Add a half cup of water.Close the kadai with a lid,until most of the water is dried.

6.Switch off the flame once its done.

This can be had with rotis,naan,poori and even with pulav and plain rice.A perfect filling food for a lunch or dinner.
