Mixed Vegetable in Mustard Paste

Mixed vegetables in mustard sauce. Well I cant say this is whole and soul my recipe... its an adaptation with some changes. Got this recipe from some old recipe book of mine, tried it and it was amazing... very chatpata. Do try and please give me ur reviews and comments. All your comments encourage me to cook better. You can make this even with just broccolli and cauliflower or even with just potatoes. Enjoy..!!

Got this idea of making this mustard special because of sunita and her mustard special event. its my contribution for this event.

Ingredients :

Potatoes - 1 1/2 cups
Capsicum - 1/2 cup
Brocolli and Cauliflower Florets - 1 cup each
Red Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Saunf - 3 tsp
Coriander powder - 2 tsp
Black mustard seeds - 4 tbsp
Yellow mustard powder - 1 tbsp
Green Chillies - 1 chopped
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Mustard oil / Vegetable oil - 8 tbsp
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves - Few sprigs
Lemon juice to taste

Method :

Grind the mustard seeds, salt, chillies, sauf, coriander powder,turmeric, and water to a paste. Let this paste stand for at least one hour exposed to air (the oxidation helps prevent the mustard seed from becoming bitter).

Boil the potatoes till half cooked. Toss them in some oil, add a bit of salt, chilli powder and shallow fry them till golden in colour.

Steam the vegetables (except potatoes). Stem the vegetables till half cooked.Now, saute the broccoli and cauliflower and capsicum in the oil (mustard oil really does improve the flavor) over high heat until slightly crisp and brown around the edges.

When the broccoli and other vegetables are slightly brown and crisp, add the fried potatoes in it.mix them well. Now, add the mustard mixture and toss. Add chili powder now if needed. Reduce the heat and cook covered until all the liquid is absorbed, for about 5 to 10 minutes.Remove from heat and garnish with sprigs of fresh cilantro (Indian version) or parsley (Western version). Add the lemon juice and mix well.

This recipe is my contribution for Sunita's Think spice : Mustard Seeds (http://sunitabhuyan.blogspot.com/2007/08/my-monthly-event-think-spice-think.html). Do leave ur comments..:)

Serve hot with naan or rotis.
