    Wonderful Veggie Curry

    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    3/4 teaspoon black mustard seeds
    5-6 medium garlic clove, minced
    1-1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    3/4 teaspoon cardamom
    3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    2 teaspoons ground coriander
    3/4 teaspoon fennel seed
    1 1/2 teaspoons turmeric
    2-3 teaspoons fresh gingerroot, grated
    3/4 teaspoon cayenne
    1/2-1 teaspoon salt (I use sea salt)
    2 cups onion, chopped (can omit if you don't like) (optional)
    2 medium carrot, sliced
    3 cups sweet potato, cubed
    1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
    3/4 cup water
    2 medium tomato, chopped
    2 cups frozen green pea or 2medium green pepper, chopped

    Optional sides
    • plain soy yogurt (optional) or dairy yogurt (optional)

    • cashew (optional) or slivered almond, lightly toasted (optional)

    • raisins (optional)

    • sliced banana (optional)


    1- Soften the onion, if using in a little water in a small pot. Set aside.

    2- In a separate, large pot, begin steaming the sweet potatoes. After about 5-10 minutes add the carrots; in 5 more minutes add the cauliflower. Steam for 5 minutes more. (They don't need to be cooked yet, just basically warmed.).

    3- Meanwhile, heat the oil over medium in a small frying pan;add the mustard seeds and saute till they begin to pop. Add the remaining spices and cook on LOW heat for a minute or two, be very careful not to burn them. Remove from heat.

    4- Remove the steamer basket from the veggies, add the softened onion and stir in the spice mixture. Add water.
    5Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.

    6- When sweet potatoes are tender but not totally cooked, add the tomatoes and peas/peppers (a combo works fine). Simmer for another 15 minutes.

    7- Serve over your favorite basmati rice, with the garnishes for a more Pakistani-style meal. Enjoy!
