A simple, lip-smacking and delicious restaurant style mixed veg gravy with detailed, step-wise picture recipe! Serve as a side dish for any Indian bread – it is perfect!
So I recently made some really delicious Mixed Vegetable Gravy, restaurant style recipe to go with our latest kitchen experiment, Laccha Cheese Naan and it was out of the world. I am taking a little break from summer recipes and sharing a simple mixed veg gravy. I have already shared quite a lot of side dishes that go well with Indian bread – Paneer gravies and curries, low calorie Malai Kofta Curry, Mushroom gravies and other mixed vegetable gravies. If you had been around for a while, you must know how much I love flat bread and a good side dish. This restaurant style mixed veg gravy is just so delicious.
A little digression here. Social media is like two sides of a coin. You find a lot of good, positive people who inspire you to be best version of yourself, there are a ton of ideas to be inspired from but at the same time, it is not easy to fall behind the numbers game, compare yourself to others and go down in a spiral. I choose to look at the positives, like getting this recipe idea from one of the many videos that showed up in my Instagram feed. I roughly took note of the recipe and modified it as I made this restaurant style mixed veg gravy in my kitchen. And, end of digression 😀
This recipe is slightly different from the other mixed vegetable gravies I have made in the past. It is rich, creamy and loaded with a lot of veggies – no cream or nuts or coconut. I made a paste of onions and tomatoes along with the spices – in fact caramelized the onions and tomatoes for a good measure. I then made a paste of them, cooked down the paste. Oh meanwhile, I roasted the veggies and added them to the gravy. A few spice powders in and a good amount of kasoor methi – the restaurant style mixed veg gravy is done! So check out the detailed recipe below 🙂
