Vegetable stew. A very easy to make lightly spiced aromatic stew with mixed vegetables.

Stew is a combination of solid food ingredients that have been cooked in liquid and served in the resultant gravy.

A hot bowl of veg stew is perfect for winter or rainy days. I have got the recipe from my mom in-law.

Grind 2 onions and ginger.
Crush the cardamom, cinnamon and cloves. Keep aside.

Grind 2 tomatoes separately. You can use only chopped tomatoes too. My mom in-law used big chunks of tomatoes and onion ginger paste. But I ground two tomatoes to make the gravy little thick.

Heat oil in a large pan or kadahi. Add crushed cardamom cinnamon and cloves with bay leaves.

Then add the onion and ginger paste. Saute till the raw smell goes out. Add the ground tomatoes if you want.

Add the chopped vegetables and green peas. Saute for 4-5 minutes. Add the tomato chunks. Saute for 2-3 minutes and add salt, red chilli powder and black pepper. You can add little more black pepper powder or  crushed if you like.

Mix well and add enough water.
Cover and cook till the vegetables becomes tender. Add more water if require. Let it boil again.

Taste and adjust the salt and pepper. Switch off the flame.
Your aromatic warming and delicious vegetables stew is ready.

Serve hot with roti/Indian flat bread, paratha, rice or toasted bread.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
