• Onion - 1, finely chopped
  • Vegetables - 2 cups, chopped (Carrots, Beans, Cauliflower and Peas)
  • Cilantro leaves - 3/4 cup chopped
  • Mint leaves - 1/2 cup chopped
  • Green chillies - 2 or 3
  • Coconut - 1/2 cup shredded
  • Cashew nuts - 1/3 cup
  • Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
  • Bay leaf - 1
  • Corriander powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala - 1/2 tsp (if preferred)
  • Whole Milk - 1/2 cup
  • Salt - as required
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
How to make it:

Steam vegetables until just done. Grind cilantro, mint, coconut, cashews and green chillies into a paste. If necessary, sprinkle some water while grinding. Heat oil in a pan, add bay leaf, cumin and fennel and when it sizzles add onions and saute for a while. Add the ginger garlic paste, corriander powder and garam masala and saute until raw smell goes off. Add the ground paste and 1/2 cup water. Add the steamed vegetables and cook for about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup whole milk and mix well. Garnish with cilantro.

This recipe got its "Very Green Colour" from the cilantro and mint leaves and so sending this to the event JFI: Cilantro
I used whole milk in the recipe instead of cream, because i used more of the cashew nuts to get a wonderful creamy dish and hence, this goes to the event Let's go nuts "Cashew nuts".
