The best part of this mix vegetable curry recipe is that you can use spare veggies that are in your kitchen and make a one pot tasty mix veg gravy.

I also make another variation of mix veg curry which is totally different than this one and is rich too – Fried mix veg sabji with paneer.

In the fried mix veg recipe, the veggies are fried but the recipe posted here does not have fried veggies. The vegetables are cooked in their juices. this takes a little longer but the result is great. I often make this when we want to have something comforting with chapatis.

Being vegetarians, we have lots of veggies in our diet. I have shared many other different types of gravies made with mix vegetables like.

Few such mix veg curry recipes are:

This mixed veg curry recipe goes very well with chapatis but also tastes good with pooris or parathas. You can also have mix veg curry with some steamed rice. You can also add paneer in this mix vegetable recipe.

If there is too much water in the curry, then remove the lid and cook till the water evaporates and you get the curry as per the consistency you want. If the vegetable curry looks dry and the veggies are not cooked, then add some water and continue to cover and cook.
