This is a simple vegetable curry which taste really delicious. It is simple to make and goes great with roti, chapati, phulka, ghee rice or pulao. It has a cashew base and instead of sauteing onions and tomatoes, i boiled them with cashews till it is cooked, this way the rawness is gone and the whole gravy got a nice creamy finish.
Cooking Time : 25 to 30 mins
Vegetables - 3 cups ( i used beets, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes and carrots)
Paneer - 1 cup cubed
Oil - 2 tblspn

Chilli Powder - 2 tsp

Take all the veggies in a pressure cooker and cook for 3 whistle. Turn off the heat and set aside. Or you can cook it in a pot, cover with water and cook until done.
