  • Pressure cooker


  • 1/2 cauliflower ( medium size)
  • 2 potato
  • 1 cup green peas (fresh)
  • 10 French beans (numbers)
  • 2 carrot
  • 1 onion (medium size)
  • 3 tomato (medium size)
  • 4 tbsp fresh cream
  • ½ tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  • ½ tsp chilli powder ( to taste)
  • ¼ tsp garam masala powder
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • 3 tbsp oil ( sunflower oil)
  • ¼ tsp salt (to taste)


  • In a pressure cooker, add oil on medium heat. To it, add chopped onions and saute until it turns translucent.
  • Now add chopped tomatoes and saute till the tomatoes turn mushy.
  • Add Ginger Garlic Paste, turmeric powder, and chili powder to the mixture and saute until the raw smell disappears.
  • Wash and cut the vegetables to equal sizes and add to the sauteed onion and tomato mixture.
  • Saute the mixed vegetables for two to three minutes.
  • Add the required quantity of water and salt to taste. Cover the lid and pressure cook for four to five minutes.
  • Switch off the flame and wait until the pressure settles. Open the lid and let it boil for two to three minutes. Now add fresh cream to the vegetable curry. Stir it for a minute and switch off the flame.
  • Finally, add some garam masala powder and garnish with coriander leaves and serve it with rotis, piping hot steamed rice, and flavoured rice.


  • You can substitute coconut milk with fresh cream. Also, if coconut isn’t available in your pantry, add full-fat milk to the vegetable curry.
  • Choice of vegetables is purely your taste. Try to add potatoes as it helps to give body to the curry.
  • You can add any masalas according to your taste. Masalas like chat masala, garam masala, and sambhar powder go well with this simple curry with a different flavour.
  • If you are non-vegetarians, egg, chicken, and mutton go well for this recipe.
  • Soya granules, paneer (cottage cheese), tofu, and chickpea are perfect choices for this recipe.
