What’s Cooking? by P.S. Lakshmi Rao


1/2  Cup almonds

1/2  Cup cashew nuts

3     Garlic cloves

2     Inches fresh ginger

4     Green chilies or to taste

1     Medium onion, chopped

½    Teaspoon ground red pepper

3     Tomatoes (blended)

1     Bag(32oz)  frozen mixed vegetables

1/2   Teaspoon turmeric

2      Teaspoons salt or to taste

1      Teaspoon Garam Masala

¼     cup cilantro/coriander,chopped


Pulse the almonds and cashews in the blender into a fine powder. Add garlic, ginger, chilies, and onion and blend into a fine paste.

In a nonstick 4-quart saucepan, heat 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil over medium-low heat. Fry the paste from blender until the oil oozes out. Add ground red pepper. Add the blended tomatoes and fry for 10 minutes. Add mixed vegetables, turmeric, salt and enough water (approximately 4 cups) to cover the vegetables. Cover with a lid and stir frequently. Cook until the vegetables are cooked. Add garam masala and cook for five more minutes. Stir in the cilantro/coriander and remove from heat. This tastes great with chapaties.  Makes 8 servings.
