Why do we bother with so many katoris for every meal? a gravy for flavour, veggies for good health and variety, a cereal for satiating our hunger, a raita or curds to minimise the effect of spices and act as a thirst quencher, a sweet to pamper ourselves. Is it possible to satisfy all these needs with one dish? yes, and that is precisely what this one-dish meal demonstrates. The ground paste of coconut, cinnamon, poppy and cardamom imparts a lingering flavour, while the garnish of fried onions and cashews adds an extra zing. Soaking is important to reduce microwave cooking time.

the dish will take time to make because of the amount of vegetables that need to cook as well as absorb the flavour of the mixed herbs. once this has happened the outcome is delicious.
