These two veggies compliment each other perfectly and taste amazing in this dish, which can be served with plain boiled rice or any flat-bread like chapatis or rotis.

  • 2-3 cubed potatoes
  • 2-3 tbsp. oil
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic paste
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger paste

  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 tsp. tomatoe paste/puree

Heat oil, add the onions and stir fry until they are soft and slightly golden. Next add the ginger and garlic pastes, followed by the tomatoes and puree. Sprinkle the cumin powder, chilli powder and turmeric. Cook until the tomatoes are thickened and oil begins to separate from them. Add the chopped chilli, potatoes and cauliflower, sprinkle some salt. Stir well until veggies are properly coated with the tomato mixture.Turn the heat down to low, and stir fry for about 5 minutes, adding a little bit of water if the mixture begins to stick to the bottom of the pan. When the veggies begin to soften, add half a cup of water, give everything a stir and turn heat down to low. Cover the pan and let the dish steam for another 5-10 minutes or until veggies are soft and completely done. You can add more water if needed. Adjust salt/spice to your taste.Garnish with freshly chopped coriander and serve!Enjoy! 🙂

  • Salam.God bless you for
    Salam.God bless you for creating this site, it is so helpful! I have a lot of family visiting and I plan on cooking a lot of these dishes inshallah. TWO Questions for you: 1) How many days do you think these veggie dishes can stay good in the fridge after cooking? 2) About how many servings do you think most of these recipes make? Jazakallah khair

    • W/Salaam, thanks dear.
      W/Salaam, thanks dear. Normally veggie dishes can easily last up to 3-4 days or even more if stored in an airtight container. But they are at their healthiest when freshly made. Most of the recipes serve 3-5 people. 🙂

  • Salam. All your recipes turn
