Roasted veggie masala

cauliflower potato final


This Sabzi is similar to that of aloo gobi as a variation have used bell peppers and roasted vegetables instead of sauting in the pan. This dish is not only delightful but easy to prepare as well, roasted cauliflower, potato, bell peppers are tossed in aromatic indian spices and topped with peanut powder gives a nutty taste to the dish.

Health Benefits:

Roasted vegetables contains very high amounts of vitamin A, vitamin B6 and vitamin C. It is full of antioxidants and anti aging and anti cancer agents.Roasted veggies is also very high in dietary fiber and potassium and has no cholesterol.

Serve this with chapathi/naan/paratha (Recipe link).

But great combination of veg, I lacked a couple of spices but added others. Really enjoying reading your recipes.
