Mixed Vegetables Subji

 

Mixed Vegetables Subji is a dish made with different vegetables. The vegetables are cooked and then tossed with an extra tempering made with butter, oil, cheese and different spices such as biryani masala, chole masala, and kasuri methi. It gives a different taste to your regular prepared subji and tastes best with roti, paratha or puri.

 

I learned this recipe from Tanuja Deshpande (My Ex-boss’ wife). I was once invited to my boss’ (Dilip Deshpande) house at Pune with my husband. Her wife Tanuja Deshpande was a banker and  is a very good singer. She had prepared very tempting and delicious dishes for us. One of the dishes she cooked was mixed vegetables. It was so delicious and irresistible. She has a wonderful gift, she can smell and tell what spices are added to the dish. She had gone for one of the  ceremonies where she ate the mixed vegetables prepared by the caterers.  She could understand what spices were added to the dish and then by adding those spices (biryani masala, chole masala), she cooked this mixed vegetable subji. I was amazed to see that how the simple vegetables that we cook on daily basis can be turned into a delicious meal just by giving a tempering to them with some additional spices, butter and cheese.

From then onward, I have been cooking this mixed vegetables and impressing my family and my guests.

I would like to thank Mrs. Tanuja Deshpande for sharing with me her amazing recipe. I wish her all the best with her music recordings and stage shows.

Friends do try this recipe and share with your family and friends!! Enjoy cooking!!
