1 cup Carrot, cut into long pieces
1 cup French Beans, cut into long pieces
1/2 cup Soya nuggets, prepared as per instructions on the pack
1 tbsp Oil
Grind to a paste:
2 tbsp Cashews
2 tbsp Peanuts
4 Red Chillies
1 tsp Coriander Seeds
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/4 tsp Kashmiri Chilli Powder
Salt to taste
This dish tastes great when prepared over the stove as well as in the microwave.
Stove Top Version:
Pressure cook the carrots and beans.
Heat the oil in a kadhai. Add the paste and fry for a few minutes. Add the vegetables and the soya nuggets. Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Place the carrots and beans in a microwave safe bowl. Add a little water. Cover and cook on high for 5 minutes. Keep aside.
In another microwave safe bowl, place the oil and heat on high for a minute. Add the paste and cook on high for 2-3 minutes, stirring after every minute. Add the vegetables and soya nuggets. Cover and cook on medium for 5-7 minutes. Allow for a few minutes of standing time.
Enjoy this dish with rotis or rice or even bread. I am sending this to Suganya for her Vegan Ventures event.
I am also sending this to Srivalli for her Microwave Easy Cooking: Side Dish Series.
We are off to attend the wedding of S's friend in Agra. And after we get back, we have 5 other weddings to attend this week. That definitely means almost no cooking at home. I hope that doesn't mean no blogging. I have not even thought about RCI this month yet and there's the JFI entry that I have to post. There's the big issue of WBB as well. I will get back to this blog as soon as I can. See you soon.
