- Thaw the vegetables completely. I like to do this by setting them out on a plate for some time. You could thaw them in the microwave but I find that this makes them mushy.
- While the vegetables are thawing, put the quartered onion, tomatoes, green chilies, ginger, and garlic into a food processor and grind into a smooth paste. There is no need to add any water to this while grinding as the juices from the tomatoes will provide sufficient liquid.
- Heat the cooking oil in a deep pan on medium heat. When hot, add the above mixture and all the powdered spices including the garam masala.
- Stir and fry/ sauté till the oil begins to separate from the masala. Stir often to prevent the masala from sticking and/ or burning. You may even need to sprinkle some water every now and then to prevent the masala from sticking and burning.
- When the masala is done (as above), add the mixed vegetables and stir gently. Season with salt to taste and add half a cup of warm water. Cook till the vegetables are tender but not pulpy/ overcooked. Remove from heat and stir in the yogurt till fully blended.
- Garnish with chopped fresh coriander and serve with Jeera Rice, plain rice, hot Chapatis or Parathas!
