A combination of baby vegetables in a nutty gravy tastes simply superb! Hence, I’ve coined this name for this very colourful and easy to prepare dish.

Parboiled peeled baby corn – 6 (keep it whole)
Boiled baby sprouts – 6
Boiled green peas – A handful
Boiled & peeled baby potatoes – 10
Peeled small onions – A big handful
Sugar – 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste


Peanuts – 2 teaspoons
Cashewnuts – 6
Ginger – A small piece
Garlic cloves – 4
Tomato chopped – 1
Chopped onion(big) – 1
Thick curds – 1 tablespoon
Cardamom seeds – 1/4 teaspoon
Jeera powder – 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder – 1 teaspoon
Cloves – 2
Kashmiri chilli powder – 2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon


Refined sunflower oil – 2 1/2 tablespoon
Whole jeera – 1 teaspoon


Finely chopped green coriander – 1 tablespoon
Kasoori methi – 2 pinches (crushed)
Fresh cream – 1 tablespoon (optional)


Heat a pan. Add the sunflower oil. Season whole jeera. When jeera splatters, first fry the small onions on low flame till golden. Add the ground paste, cover with lid and fry till raw smell goes. Add all the veggies one by one – green peas, baby potatoes, sprouts and baby corn. Add salt to taste and sugar. In case the gravy is too thick, add 1/4 cup of water and mix well. Let it simmer for 5 mins on a low flame.
Garnish with chopped green coriander leaves, kasoori methi and fresh cream. Serve hot with paranthas, phulkas, puri and pulao.

Chef’s tip

Do not over cook the vegetables. A little crunch adds on taste.
