Gujarati-style vege curry

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 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.
