Mixed Vegetables - Patiala Style

This is a Tarla Dalal recipe.   Was browsing through her book and found this interesting recipe.  Made  little changes in this recipe and prepared it.  It was delicious and creamy,  without adding a spoon of cream.  This recipe is a keeper.

2 Cups  Mixed vegetables
1 Capsicum - 
1 Onion -  finely chopped
1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric powder
2 Green chillies -  finely chopped
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Teaspoon sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon powder
1 Teaspoon Ginger - Garlic paste - mixed in little water
1 Tablespoon  Coriander  - finely chopped
3 Tablespoons Ghee

2 Tablespoons Oil
Salt to taste

In mixed veggies I used potato cauliflower, carrots, green peas.
Heat the  oil and ghee  in a pressure pan, fry the onion till light pink.  Add the ginger garlic paste, green chilly and  fry well till oil leaves the sides.  The add all the veggies and fry  on high flame for 5 minutes, stirring continuously.  Then add the turmeric, cinnamon powder,  salt and stir again for a minute.  Add the milk, sugar and give it a quick stir.  Close the pan with the lid and take a whistle on high flame.  Take off flame after a whistle, let the pan cool.  Open and serve garnished with coriander.  Enjoy....

My Notes :

In  the original recipe the veggies were boiled and to thicken the gravy a teaspoon of cornflour was used.
