Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 20 mins

Serves - 2


  • Mixed Veggie's - 3 to 4 cups (I used Carrot, Cauliflower, Green Beans, Potato)
  • Oil - 2 tbsp (coconut oil preferred)
  • Tomato - 1 large finely chopped
  • Small onions / pearl onions - 5 -6 peeled
  • coriander leaves - few strands
  • green chilli - 3 small
  • shredded coconut - 4 tbsp
  • salt - to taste


In a sauce pan add 2 cups of water and salt to taste and cook the veggies until they are tender.

Meanwhile to make the gravy keep tomato, pearl onions, coriander leaves and green chilli ready. In a small frying pan, add oil and saute onions for a minute then add in tomato, green chilli and coriander leaves and mix well. Saute them until they become tender and the raw smell goes. Once they are cooked add shredded coconut to that and switch off the stove.

 Transfer the mixture to a blender and grind into a nice smooth paste. Then add them to the cooked veggies and mix well.

Add water if required, and cook them for 2 to 3 mins.

Note: Do not make it too watery.

Yummy mixed vegetable gravy is prepared in no time :)

Enjoy and Happy Cooking !! :)
