Indian Cooking: Mixed Veg with Gravy Recipe

This is the final North Indian recipe. It sounds so easy to make that I had to reread my notes a few times. This mixed vegetable dish can be served with rice or scooped up with chapati. As with the rest of the recipes I’ve posted and will post, this one is vegetarian. If you’d like to throw in some chicken, use your best judgement as to when to add it. Just make sure it’s thoroughly cooked! I hope you’ve enjoyed this recipe series. Stay tuned for South Indian cuisine.
