Kadai vegetable is a delicious and healthy Indian curry made with a variety of vegetables cooked in a flavorful kadai sauce.
Veg kadai is a quick and easy dish to make, and it is perfect for a weeknight meal. The secret lies in the aromatic kadai masala
Roast bay leaf, dry red chili, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom.
Step 1: Make kadai masala
Cool the spices and grind them using a spice blender. Blend until you get a coarse texture. You’ve just made an awesome kadai masala!
Dice onions and bell peppers into 1-inch cubes. Stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes until the veggies are browned but still retain the crunch. Remove from the kadai.
Step 2: Roast vegetables
Chop carrots, beans and potatoes into batons. Roast in oil for 10 minutes. Add cauliflower florets and green peas. Saute until the veggies are half-cooked.
Transfer the veggies and keep aside. Heat oil in the same kadai and saute a bayleaf, cumin seeds and finely chopped onions.
Step 3: Make the gravy
Add ginger garlic paste and saute for a couple of minutes on low flame. Add pureed tomatoes and stir until the gravy becomes thick and saucy.
Add the half-cooked vegetables, yogurt, chili powder and salt. Saute for 5 minutes until well combined.
Add 1 cup of water and bring it to a boil. Reduce the flame and cook covered for 10 minutes. The veggies should be cooked, but still have a crunch.
Add the roasted onions and bell peppers and kadai masala. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Garnish with kasuri methi and chopped coriander leaves.
