Veg Kheema Masala

March 26, 2014

A few months back I had been with my friends to a restaurant for dinner and they had ordered this dish. It was so tasty that I just wanted to try it in my kitchen and let me tell you that turned out so good. It became a regular dish on our dining table. Decided to put it on my blog, so here friends is this awesome and yummy recipe that was our Sunday's menu. This recipe is a keeper. Try it out and enjoy.

8 french beans
8 mushrooms
8 cauliflower florets
1 medium size carrot
½ cup green peas boiled
2 Large onions brista
1 green chilli finely chopped
½ inch ginger chopped finely
3 garlic flakes chopped finely
1 badi ealichi
1 inch cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon cashewnut powder
1 tsp Vindaloo Masala
1/4 tsp garam masala powder
5 Kashmiri red chilies
1/2 cup curds
1 tablespoon oil + 1 tablespoon butte
salt to taste


Soak the kashmiri red chilies in warm water for 10 minutes. Drain then grind to a fine paste( This will give a nice orange red color to the gravy). Grind the onion brista ( fried oinons) along with the curds to a fine paste add the cashew nut powder and give a run again.

Mince all the veggies except the boiled peas in a food processor. In a pan heat 1 tablespoon oil and fry these veggies lightly. Keep aside.

Heat oil and butter in a pan, add whole spices – bay leaf, badi elachi & cinnamon. Add ginger, garlic and green chilli, fry lightly , add the onion mixture, red chilli paste, vindaloo masala. Fry the whole mixture till oil separates. Add all the veggies and boiled green peas. Add water and salt.

Cover and cook till for 2 - 3 minutes. Add little water to make a thick gravy. Now add the garam masala and salt. Garnish with coriander leaves and a teaspoon of butter.

I also made a salad called Kuchumber. Kuchumber is an onion tomato salad. This salad goes very well with pulaos and gravies. The meaning of kuchumber is crush and that is how this salad is made by crushing all the ingredients together with your hands till the onions are seperated. 



1 Large onion chopped  in roundales  finely
1 Large tomato chopped roundales finely
1 Green chilli chopped finely
A teaspoon of lime juice or vinegar
Salt to taste
Mint or coriander leaves chopped for garnishing.

Just mix all the above ingredients with you hand well till the onions are seperated .  Serve Veg Kheema Masala hot with  Kuchumber, some rotis, phulkas, naan or bread .
