Mixed Vegetable Masala

It is Blog hop Wednesday again. This time I am paired with Rajini . She has a collection of eclectic dishes and I loved her Potato roast. Thought of doing just the potatoes but at the last minute found that I had just one big potato left and so were a handful of okras and half a zucchini. Decided to throw everything in and we were surprised how good  the dish came out to be. The masala called for in the recipe can be counted on the fingers in one hand but that is what makes this dish stand out. Simple yet delicious. Also decided to start and finish the on stove top as against the original recipe.
We will need,

Potato 1 large chopped
Okra chopped 2 cups (toast the chopped okras on a hot griddle till the slime disappears)
Zucchini chopped 1 cup
Tomatoes 1 medium
Green chillies 2 slit
Peanut oil 3 tbsp

For the masala paste
Onion 1 medium
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Jeera 3/4 tsp
Chilli powder to taste

  • Combine all the ingredients for the masala paste in a blender and grind it into  a smooth paste. Set it aside.
  • Heat oil in a Thick bottom wok. Throw in all the vegetables and saute for a few minutes. Once the vegetables are brown and crisp on one side, pour the masala paste and toss well.Cover and cook till the vegetables are tender crisp and the masala fragrant.
  • Adjust salt and serve warm with Roti.
