Knowingly or unknowingly we add lots of fat and calories to our daily food. Our food should be based on 2000-2500 calorie per day, if you maintain standard health, but if you count your calorie contain, it must be in higher side. Honestly even I do so. When I was in Bhubaneswar my sister use to prepare a mix curry without adding a drop of oil and believe me it is amezed.The delicious taste of my sister‘s hand I can never forget. Recently I prepared that dish and somehow it was up to my satisfaction but not like my sis made. HE HE HE!!!!

So here is recipe for it:

Mixed vegetable curry (Without adding fat)

Preparation time: 15 minutes (Approximately)

Cooking time: 40-45 minutes (Approximately)

French Beans-1/2 cup

Carrot-1/4 cup

Green Peas-1/8 cup (fresh or frozen)

Tomato-1 cut in cubed

Green Chillies-1 sliced

Coriander Powder-1 Tabs

Chilli Powder-1-2 tsp (or as required)

Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp

Salt-as required

Gram masal-1/2 tsp

Cumin Powder-1 tsp


• Mix all vegetables in a bowl along with all dry masala, chillies and crushed garlic.

• Add salt also in that.

• Keep this for half an hour.

• You will see after half an hour, vegetables are little watery.

• Now heat a pan in low medium heat.

• Then add all these masala mixed vegetables.

• Cook in low flame with covering a lid till vegetables are tender.

• Then remove and add coriander leaves.
