VEGETABLE BATH FROM FOODIE'S HOPE

This recipe I have adopted from Asha's Foodie's Hope who is well known as Ashakka. She is the inspiration for every new blogger and a great cook. I like her blog because of her traditional Karnataka recipes not only Karnataka recipes and also many international recipes we can find in her blog. Thank you so much Asha for this delicious Vegetable Bath recipe.
Asha says this one is her mom's recipe which is rice and vegetables are cooked in spicy aromatic coconut masala. And we can keep this masala in the fridge for 2 days hummm good idea.. And here I go with the recipe……….
I didn’t make any changes.

INGREDIENTS:---
Rice -- 2 cups
Mixed vegetables – 2 cups (I used carrot, potato, cauliflower, peas,)
Onion – 1 medium sliced
Oil and ghee mix – 1 tab sp
Salt to taste
For masala:--
Grated coconut – 1 cup
Green chilies – 3-4 (according to your taste)
Cloves – 4
Cinnamon – 1 inch piece
Ginger – 1 inch piece
Garlic – 5 cloves
Few curry leaves
Coriander stems --- 6 (this is to avoid green color and give a nice aroma to the rice)
Mint – 20 leaves
Add a little water to all above ingredients and grind in to a coarse paste and leave a side.

METHOD:---
Now let us see how to make this aromatic vegetable bath.
1. Wash rice and add 3 and 1/2 cup s of water and soak for 10 -15 min then cook and spread in a plate to cool and leave a side.
2. If you are using frozen vegetables the thaw them to room temperature, if you are using tin vegetables then drain the water, or if you are using fresh one s then cut them in to small cubes and cook in a little water and a pinch of salt till tender and keep a side.
3. Peel wash and slice the onion
4. Now heat oil and ghee mix in a pan add onion slices and fry till light brown color now keep the flame low and add ground masala and cooked vegetables and mix gently and cook in a low flame for 5 min.dodn't fry just heat nicely till the masala gives a nice aroma.
5. Add this masala with salt to taste to rice and mix gently to combine well.
Just add as much as masala you need and rest of the masala you can keep it in the fridge and you can use it for 2-3 days
Serve this delicious aromatic vegetable Bath with raitha and salad.
I served this with dal, raitha and pappad.
