Mixed Vegetable Sabji

"You know it is time you went on a diet when your brother starts calling you names like MRF tyre".

Doesn't matter he always called me names.I tried to pacify myself saying that maybe the medicines are taking the toll or that I just look bloated but I am not.Sadly,the mirror and the weighing scale are honest beings and don't usually lie..sigh.

So the moment I was back from my 4 days Ekm trip,I chalked out a diet plan.A very strict plan.It's been 4 days and it is still going strong,so I hope next time he calls me Polo mint or something.So don't be surprised if you see only the so-called healthy stuff on Easycooking.It is tough,no doubt.I sure seem like someone on vengeance while doing my morning walk and Ajay wonders if I would destroy the weighing scale one of these days for not showing me the weight I want to

I tried out this Cauliflower Sabji from DK's blog but with slight modifications.I added some Broccoli and Green Capsicum too.Tastes great on its own to munch away and even better with rotis.So if you are dieting or not,this one's a pretty quick and easy sabji you can whip up in no time!!

Mixed vegetable Sabji
Adapted minimally from Chef In You


Cauliflower - about 250 gms,cut into florets
Broccoli - about 250 gms,cut into florets
Tomato - 1,chopped
Capsicum - 1,chopped
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Cumin-coriander powder - 1 tsp
Haldi - a fat pinch
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - to garnish


Wash and clean the cauliflower and broccoli florets.
In a kadai add a tsp of oil and splutter the cumin seeds,take care not to burn.
As soon as the cumin starts becoming aromatic,add in the spices and tomatoes along with the salt.Cook for 1-2 minutes.
Now add the florets and  capsicum and give it a good toss.
Close the lid, lower the heat to low-medium and let it cook for about 8-10 minutes or until the vegetables are just cooked enough[We like the veggies a bit crunchy and not too soft,so cook accordingly].
Add the coriander leaves and serve hot!!
