“Indian curry recipe with loads of vegetables and great taste. Goes great with just plain rice or any Indian bread!!!” - by SK
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Place 2 cups water, cabbage, carrot, green beans, bell pepper, and yellow split peas in a pressure cooker; lock lid. Bring cooker up to pressure and cook until peas are tender, 6 to 8 minutes. If your pressure cooker does not have a quick-release function, reduce cooking times slightly as food will continue to cook while pressure releases slowly. Drain and reserve excess liquid; set vegetables aside.
- Mix ground coriander, sambar powder, chili powder, and 1/2 teaspoon water in a bowl to create a paste.
- Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir cumin seeds and mustard seeds until seeds sputter, about 1 minute; add asafoetida powder. Stir in the sambar paste; cook and stir until thickened, about 1 minute. Season with turmeric, and stir in vegetables. If vegetable mixture is too thick, stir in reserved cooking liquid.
- Mix cilantro, coconut, tamarind pulp, brown sugar, and salt into vegetable mixture. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes more.

"I don't have a pressure cooker so I had to modify this. I soaked the split peas in the refrigerator overnight to soften them. Then I stir fried the vegetables in a tablespoon of canola oil for a few m..." See moreinutes, before adding the spices. (I didn't have sambar powder, so used garlic chili paste) Next I added the peas, and then some water. I let the mixture simmer for about 15 minutes. The peas still came out a little firm, so maybe I should have cooked them a bit while I was cooking the veggies. I served all over basmati rice. This recipe was OK, but it could have used a few more vegetables in my opinion."
