Mixed Vegetable Curry

There are days when my fridge is stocked with many veggies but the quantities are not enough to make a dish by itself. I’m sure all of us have been there! That’s when I prepare my vegetable curry that makes use of all these leftover veggies. It has the added benefit of being highly nutritious cause I use so many veggies. You don’t have to use the same veggies as I do, use your leftovers or your favorites 🙂

Time: 

  • Prep time – 20 minutes
  • Cook time – 20 minutes

Ingredients: 

  • Carrots (Diced and cooked) – 3/4 cup
  • Corn (cooked) – 1/2 cup
  • Green Peas – 1/2 cup

  • White Mushrooms (Sliced into quarters) – 3/4 cup
  • Roma Tomatoes (Chopped) – 1 cup

  • Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
