  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp almond flour , or paste of 8-10 soaked almonds
  • 1/2 tsp all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1 tsp kasoori methi
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • pinch turmeric powder
  • 8 strands saffron , soaked in milk
  • 1/2 tsp rose water
  • 1 tsp ginger , minced

Instructions

Instant Pot:

  1. Turn on saute mode in the Instant Pot and add in the oil. Heat the oil for one minute and in the garlic, green chili, and ginger. Saute it for a few seconds and then toss in the onions and bay leaves, cooking until translucent.

  2. Pour in the fresh tomato puree and immediately turn off the saute mode because we will be adding yogurt in soon and we don't want it to split. In a small bowl mix together the 2 tbsp of water, almond flour (or paste), all purpose flour, and yogurt to make a paste. Add this in paste or mixture and stir the mixture. Once combined turn on the saute mode.

  3. Add the butter, turmeric, kasoori methi, salt, green beans, carrots, and water. Put the lid on and pressure cook for 2 minutes on high in manual mode and then quick release it.

  4. Turn on saute mode again and add peas, corn, peppers, paneer, pineapple, all of the spices, saffron (soaked in milk), milk, and cream. Mix them together, add in the rose water and then turn off saute mode and take it out in a bowl. Don't over saute, otherwise the vegetables will lose their color. The Mixed Vegetables are ready!

Stove Top:

  1. Cook it in a heavy-bottom saucepan and instead of pressure cooking, just cover it and cook it until the vegetables are al-dente (soft but still have a bite).

Recipe Notes

  1. If the gravy seems to be too runny after you're done, don't worry because the cream and almond powder (or paste) will thicken it over time.
