I don’t usually do cookery posts as I’m not sure I’m a particularly special cook. However, I made this the other day and wanted to write it down for future reference – so I though it may as well be written down here.
Years ago I went to a cookery class run by Kailash of http://www.kailashyogacentre.co.uk/ and she taught this delicious vege curry. She said it was Gujarat style – I have no idea! Anyway, my daughter asked for it the other week, but I couldn’t find the recipe. So with some help from a Madhur Jaffrey book, I came up with this…
600g chopped mixed veg – I used potatoes, cauliflower, butternut squash and carrots
Splash of vegetable oil
Half a fresh red chilli
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon tumeric
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
ground black pepper
Cherry tomatoes – about 6
Salt, ground cumin and ground coriander
Heat the oil in a large pan, then add the spices. Fry for a minute or two, until the seeds start to pop. Add the chopped veg, salt and pepper. Turn down low, put the lid on and fry gently for 20-30 minutes – until the potatoes are tender.
Meanwhile, add the halved tomatoes and chopped cucumber to a small bowl of yoghurt. Season with salt, ground cumin and ground coriander.
Serve the chapatis, topped with the spicy veges and yoghurt dressing.
