Vegetable Dhaniya Masala - Recipe Inspired -Dr. Chef. Damu

Yesterday, I came across this recipe video from Dr.Chef. Damu on a show and instantly liked it so much that I wanted to try it right away (I used the veggies I had at the moment). This is a real fresh flavorful recipe than our usual curries, the lemon squeeze adds a real good flavor to this recipe. We had it with beets rice.

Disclaimer: The recipe is from and inspired by Dr. Chef. Damu. But the one I've written here is my own measurements for the ingredients.

Recipe Source and Inspiration - Video from Chef Damu.
Number of servings - 2 to 3
Mixed Vegetables - 1 cup (I used cauliflower, peas and bell pepper)
Onion - 1 chopped
Ginger Garlic Paste
Red chillipowder - 1/4 spoon
Coriander powder - 1/4 spoon

To Grind:
Dhaniya (Coriander seeds) - 1 handful
Red Chilli - 4
Cilantro - 1/2 bunch

To Temper:

  • Dry Roast the coriander seeds and red chillies and grind it along with cilantro by sprinkling water in the blender and keep aside.
  • In a wok, heat oil and splutter items to temper. Add the onions and ginger garlic paste and saute well
  • Add vegetables and saute. Add the salt, chilli powder and coriander powder( these are barely for the coating, the main masala is from the grond paste)
  • Add the paste and cook well. It becomes like a thokku
  • Squeeze lemon and the yummy dish is ready to eat
