Mixed Vegetable Subzi


I am sure everyone has a favorite recipe/way of their own to use up the odds and ends from their vegetable bins. When I have to deal with a vegetable medley, my first choice goes towards subzis. I have several versions of mixed veggie subzis but I stick to particular combinations that work, like this one for instance. To be honest, I prepare this curry not only when I have to cleanup my refrigerator but even when my vegetable bin is full. I love this combination so much - cabbage, carrot, beans and chayote all being in top of my favorite veggie list. Add any other veggies that work with this combination like peas, potatoes or remove some, the subzi would still be wonderful. And also no need to worry about the quantity of the veggies. Just adjust according to the availability.

Ingredients:
2 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup chopped beans
2 carrots - peeled and cubed
1/2 chayote - peeled and cubed
1/4 - 1/2 cup fresh, shredded coconut
Green chillies / dried red chillies as needed
Salt to taste
For tadka:
1 -2 Tbsp oil
1 tsp Bengal gram / chana dal
1 tsp split, skinned black gram / urad dal
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/8 tsp turmeric powder
Few curry leaves


Method:
* Heat oil in a non stick pan or a kadai. Add all the tadka ingredients in the order mentioned and when the dal starts turning reddish, add the chillies and saute for few seconds.
* Next add the veggies and salt to the pan. Cover and cook on low flame, stirring intermittently. When the veggies are done, add coconut and stir well. Cook for a couple of minutes more and turn off the stove.
* Serve with rice / rotis.
