  1. 3 medium potatoes
  2. 8 medium tomatoes
  3. 10 -12 ladyfinger
  4. 10-12 french beans
  5. 10-12 cluster beans
  6. 2 medium apple gourd ( tinda )
  7. 10 -12 florets of cauliflower
  8. 1/4 cup Peas
  9. 2 inch piece ginger
  10. 2 tbsp Oil
  11. 4 tbsp gram flour ( besan )

  14. 1 tsp fenugreek seeds
  15. 1 tsp cumin seeds
  16. 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  17. 1 tsp red chilli powder

  1. Wash the tomatoes, blanch them and make a tomato puree.strain it and keep aside. Wash all the vegetables, peel the potatoes and apple gourd and cut them in 1 1/2 inch pieces approx.
  2. Cut the ends of french and cluster beans as they go in whole. Cut the ends of ladyfinger and make a longitudinal slit on one side.
  3. Saute all the vegetables in some oil so that they get cooked easily later. In a pressure cooker or a big vessel, take oil, put the mustard, cumin and fenugreek seeds.as they splutter, add asafoetida and curry leaves.
  4. To this ,add the gram flour and roast it on a low flame till it turns brown. Add grated ginger and red chilli powder.
  5. Add the tomato puree and mix fast so there are no lumps. Add in more water, approx 2 litres and let it come to boil.
  6. Keep stirring the kadi and add salt according to taste. After 10-15 mins of boiling add potatoes, apple gourd , peas and both the beans.
  7. Let it simmer on low flame. Put the Cauliflower florets and ladyfinger after 20 mins when the above veggies are done ,as the former take less time to get cooked.
  8. Keep the kadi simmering on low flame for nearly 1 1/2 hr. more it simmers, more it is tasty. Check for the doneness of all the veggies separately and then switch off the gas. Serve hot with steamed rice.
