Rasvali - Mixed Vegetable Gravy & Entries for Rice Event

This is absolutely new recipe for me which I got from one of my good friend Rani. I hope I spelled it right. She emailed me this recipe and asked me to try it out. I tried this yesterday and as she said, it tastes really good and goes really well with rice and can be used as side dish for roti, dosa etc. Here is the recipe..

  1. Potato - 4 (medium sized) (chop it into cubes)
  2. Carrot - 2 (chop it into cubes)
  3. Peas - 1/4 cup ( i used frozen)
  4. Onion - 1 (if its medium or 1/2 if its big)
  5. Tomato - 1 (chop it)
  6. Coriander powder - 1 1/2 tsp
  7. Cumin Powder - 1/2 tsp
  8. Red chillies powder - 1/2 tsp (acc to taste)
  9. Salt to taste
  10. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  11. Jaggery - 1 1/2 tsp
  12. Peanut powder - 3 tsp (acc to taste)
  13. White Sesame seeds - 1/4 tsp **
  14. Tamarind paste - 1/4 tsp **
  15. oil - 2 tsp
  16. Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  17. fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
  18. Coriander leaves - for garnishing.
First dry roast peanuts and white sesame seeds to golden brown and grind it into a fine powder. Keep it aside. In the mean time, take a pan, add potato, carrots & peas, add required amount of water and let it cook. Drain it when it is done and keep it aside. Pre heat oil in a pan, splutter cumin and fennel seeds, add onion and saute for few minutes. Now add tomato and saute for few seconds and add the cooked vegetables, required amount of water (say about half a cup), turmeric powder, salt, tamarind paste, cumin powder, chilli powder and coriander powder and let everything cook together really well. Add water if necessary. Add the grounded peanut+sesame seeds now along with jaggery and let them cook for another couple of minutes. Consistency will be like sabji. Add water to adjust the required consistency. Garnish it with coriander leaves. It really goes well with rice which we tried yesterday. I just followed the same recipe she emailed me. But I added couple of more ingredients. They are...

** - In the original recipe, there was no tamarind or white sesame seeds. But I added those two which I think was a good idea cos my hubby could not figure out whether it is a sambar or not (LOL)
