Bombay Vegetables

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Bombay Vegetables. You can add any vegetables that you like, and it is a wonderful side dish to some roasted meat, but a great main course on it's own as well.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Potatoes
2. Mustard Seeds
3. Red Chilli Flakes
4. Ground Coriander
5. Ground Turmeric
6. Ground Cumin
7. Fresh Ginger
8. Sunflower Oil
9. Butter
10. Any Steamed Vegetables
11. Salt and Pepper
12. Fresh Coriander

Bismillah, let's begin!

Peel and wash six potatoes.

 Slice the potatoes into chunks.

 Boil the potatoes until they are just cooked.

 Now, to make the spice mix. In a bowl, take 2 teaspoons of mustard seeds

 Next, add 2 teaspoons of crushed red chilli flakes.

 And 2 teaspoons of ground coriander.

 And 2 teaspoons of ground turmeric.

 And 2 teaspoons of ground cumin.

 Next, take 2 teaspoons of crushed fresh ginger

 Take a large saucepan, and heat a few tablespoons of sunflower oil. When the oil is hot, add the spice mixture and the fresh ginger to the pan.

 Cook the spices and ginger for a few minutes.

Then, add 3 ounces butter, and stir in.


 Drain the boiled potatoes.

Add the potatoes to the pan.

For the mixed vegetables, I used a frozen mix of carrots, peas and green beans. You can, of course, use fresh but make sure they are pre-cooked.

 Add the cooked vegetables to the pan. 

 Stir-fry on a high heat for a few minutes.


 Next, slice four tomatoes.

Add the tomatoes to the pan, and stir to combine.

Bring the vegetables to a boil, and then turn the heat down. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. 

 Finally, take a handful of fresh coriander.

 Add the coriander to the vegetables, and stir to combine.

 Serve hot with flatbreads, rice or as a side dish.
