  1. Wash, peel & slice carrot, potatoes and beans and steam cook the vegetables till they are soft. Keep this aside. Slice the Capsicum and set it aside. We are going to add capsicum at last so no need to steam cook it
  2. Heat 2 cups of water. Bring it to boil. Add 3 tomatoes and switch off the flame. Cover the vessel with lid and set it aside for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, peel the skin of the tomato. Allow it to cool. Then grind it to puree in a mixer. Set this tomato puree aside

  3. In another vessel, bring 2 cups of water to boil. Add salt and turmeric powder and allow the water to boil. Switch off the flame and add the cauliflower florets. Let the florets sit in hot water for 5-6 minutes. Then drain the water and set the florets aside

  4. Soak a tablespoon of cashews in hot water for 10 minutes. Then drain the water and grind the cashews to a smooth paste and set it aside

  5. Heat a heavy bottomed pan. Add butter and allow it to melt. Then add cumin seeds. 

  6. When the cumin seeds starts to sputter, add finely chopped garlic and saute it for few seconds. Then add tomato puree and allow it to cook for 3-4 minutes in medium flame

  7. Add salt, coriander powder, red chili powder and mix well. Add cashew paste and stir well

  8. Then, add steam cooked veggies along with cauliflower florets, capsicum and green peas and stir everything well. Let the capsicum and peas cook for 5 minutes along with other veggies and the gravy

  11. To Enrich the gravy we can add coarsely ground cashew-almond. Cashew-almond powder is optional. Its just added to enrich the flavor of the dish. If you are calorie specific, you can reduce the cream and add milk instead and also can skip the garnishing of nuts.
