  • Vegetables of your choice, cut into cube sizes (we used 1 large carrot, 1 cup butternut squash, 1 cup green papaya, 2 green peppers, and 1 cup potato)

  • 7-8 green chilis, smashed

  • 2½ tbsp cooking oil

  • 2 tsp panch phoron

  • 1½ cups thinly sliced onions (from 2 medium onions)

  • 1 tbsp garlic paste

  • 1 tbsp ginger paste

  • 2 tbsp water

  • 1 tsp red chili powder

  • ½ tsp turmeric powder

  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)

  • 1 cup water (more if needed)

  • ½ tsp coriander powder

  • ½ tsp roasted cumin powder

  • ½ tsp garam masala

  • A big pinch of sugar


  1. Prep the Ingredients: Cut all your vegetables into cube sizes. Smash 7-8 green chilis using a mortar and pestle. Set aside.

  2. Saute Spices: In a large pan, heat 2½ tbsp cooking oil. Add 2 tsp panch phoron and sauté for 30-40 seconds.

  3. Add Onions: Add 1½ cups of thinly sliced onions and sauté until light brown.

  4. Garlic and Ginger Paste: Once the onions change color, add a splash of water along with 1 tbsp of garlic paste. Mix well. Add the reserved smashed green chilis and 1 tbsp of ginger paste. Sauté for another 30 seconds.

  5. Spice It Up: Add 2 tbsp of water followed by 1 tsp red chili powder, ½ tsp turmeric, and 1 tsp of salt. Sauté for 2 minutes over medium heat.

  6. Add Veggies: Add all the prepped vegetables. Mix well with the spices over high heat.

  7. Cover and Cook: Turn the heat to medium-high. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.

  8. More Water: After 5 minutes, add 1 cup of water (add more if needed). Cover and cook until all the vegetables are tender, around 10-12 minutes over low heat.

  9. Final Seasoning: Taste the salt and adjust the seasoning by adding salt to taste. Then add ½ tsp each of coriander powder, roasted cumin powder, and garam masala. Mix well and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

  10. The Final Touch: Add a big pinch of sugar, mix well, and you're done!
