Vegetable Korma

I have taken a lot of pictures of food lately, trying to improve the way a photo ought to be taken. I happened to see that there are multiple pictures of a lot of food I had made but had not shared it. So, here goes nothing. Expect a few more recipes coming your way.
First up, Vegetable Korma. It’s mainly a mixture of vegetables, coconut and poppy seeds(main ingredient).  It’s rather easy to make. Its best had with Chapatis, flat breads or rice. 
Ingredients:
2 tsp virgin olive oil
Chopped mixed vegetables( bell peppers, broccoli, spinach, peas, potatoes,cauliflower, tomato)
1/2 onion
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Jeera
1 tbsp Lemon juice
Onion 1 small chopped
Salt to taste

To Grind:
1 tsp Garlic paste
1 tsp Ginger  paste
1/4 cup Coconut grated
1″ piece Cinnamon
Clove 4-5
1/4 tsp Anise/Saunf seeds
1 tsp Khus Khus/Poppy Seeds
2 Green Chillies (or more if you like it spicy)
1/4 sprig Coriander leaves
few leaves of Mint
Directions:
Have the broccoli and potatoes boiled in the microwave to save time during cooking. In the meantime,heat oil in a wok like pan. Once the oil is hot, add mustard and jeera. Once they start spluttering, add the chopped onions. Once they are light brown, add bell peppers and cook for a bit. Then add spinach and sauté. Add the broccoli and potatoes and sauté to coat them with oil.Add peas and salt. Cover and cook for a while (less than 5 minutes). During the last-minute of cooking, add the chopped tomato. Add the lemon juice and you are all set.
 
 
So, ok. This is not the best example of the pictures I took. That comes later.
