Mixed Indian Veggies

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


If you like Indian food spices such as curry or ginger, you'll love this vegan recipe of mixed carrots, peas and potatoes simmered in a generous amount of aromatic Indian spices. This recipe for curried Indian mixed veggies is both vegetarian and vegan. If you don't happen to have all of the spices on hand, feel free to skip one or two, but anymore than that and you will miss the authentic Indian flavor of this dish.

Mixed Indian Veggies - yummy!, Guest Sandy

This was truly easy, healthy and delicious. At an Indian-themed potluck, it was a big hit with our friends. I used all olive oil instead of one half margarine (healthier). I would recommend a couple of other changes - assuming you're using frozen peas, add them at the end so they don't overcook. I found the cooking time to be about forty minutes rather than twenty. And the recipe is fairly spicy, reduce the cayenne if you're not a fan of spicy food.
