Boil all the vegetable with little salt. Make sure vegetables do have their crunch, dont fully boil. Drain and keep aside. Use that water in further use in this recipe.
Take all the ingredients under TO GRIND and grind into a smooth paste with adding little water. One can also used Khus Khus and Cashew nuts while grinding for richer taste. Though I didn’t add , still it gives finger licking taste 🙂
In a Kadai take 1 tsp oil add Bay Leaf and few curry leaves. Add hing and then finely chopped Onions. Sprinkle some salt and saute for a minute. Add Ginger chilli paste and Garlic Paste. Saute for few seconds. Now add Tomato Puree. To make this puree you can simply chopped tomatoes and grind into smooth paste or boil tomatoes in hot water for 4-5 minutes , drain, de-skin and then make puree. Any method is perfect for this curry depends on time you have 😉 😉
Saute tomato puree till all raw smell gone. Then add Turmeric Powder, chilli powder, cumin coriander powder, garam masala, salt . Mix all nicely .
Now add coconut paste, boiled vegetables, chopped coriander and almost a glass of water. Mix well and allow it cook till everything get blend nicely.
