Mixed Vegetable Curry

There's a certain thrill in finding a new recipe and trying it out, however complicated it might be. But there are times when all you want is a simple something. Amma used to make this dish every once in a while. It went very well with chapatis. Or even with rice and dal. The rice and dal combination is my absolute favourite way to eat this vegetable.

2 Potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" long pieces

2 Carrots, peeled and cut into 1" long pieces

20 French Beans, strung and cut into 1" long pieces

1 tsp Oil

1/4 tsp Cumin Seeds

1/4 tsp Asafoetida

1 tsp Sambar Powder

Salt to taste

Cook the vegetables in a pressure cooker for 1-2 whistles.

In a pan, heat the oil. Add the cumin seeds and asafoetida. When the cumin seeds crackle, add the vegetables and saute them for a couple of minutes. Add the sambar powder and salt. Mix well, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes. Garnish with some coriander leaves if you wish.

Simplicity at its best. You can vary the vegetables in this dish to include whatever you like. This is just what I happened to have on hand.
