What Is Vegetable Masala?

Vegetable masala is a tasty and healthy Indian Pakistani dish that combines vegetables like potatoes, peas, carrots, cauliflower, and beans with onions and tomatoes, as well as spices such as chili powder, ginger powder, garlic powder, garam masala powder which makes it a great meal to have in your cooking repertoire.

Are Mixed Vegetables Healthy?

The benefits of mixed vegetables have been well-known for ages. One of the greatest methods to obtain nutrients from food is to eat a balanced, varied diet of different kinds of veggies from a young age onward. The majority of health experts advise eating veggies every day because they are low in calories yet high in nutrients. 


Vegetables are high in key vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all of which bring several health benefits to the body. Carrots, for example, are renowned for their high vitamin A content, which plays a vital role in maintaining eye health as we age.

Additional health advantages that vegetables provide include:

Better Digestive Health

Dietary fiber, a kind of carbohydrate that facilitates the movement of food through the digestive system, is present in vegetables in reasonable amounts. According to studies, fiber may also increase the body’s ability to absorb vitamins and minerals, which may increase your level of energy throughout the day.

Controlling Diabetes

Fiber is particularly abundant in vegetables, which is essential for optimum digestion. Your blood sugar won’t spike after eating them because of their low glycemic index. At least three to five servings of non-starchy vegetables, such as broccoli, carrots, or cauliflower, should be consumed daily, according to the American Diabetes Association.

Combat Inflammation

Though chronic inflammation can occasionally be beneficial, too much of it is bad for our systems. Among the healthiest things to eat to reduce inflammation is vegetables. They are a good source of phytochemicals and antioxidants, which benefit your health.

Reduced Blood Pressure

Potassium is present in many green leafy vegetables, including kale, spinach, and chard. Potassium improves the effectiveness with which your kidneys remove sodium from your body, which can lower your blood pressure.

Reduced Heart Disease Risk

Additionally, vitamin K, which is found in green leafy vegetables, is thought to stop calcium from accumulating in your arteries. By doing so, you can reduce your risk of artery damage and avert numerous heart-related problems in the future.

Improve Your Skin

In addition to drinking plenty of water and getting enough sleep, you may assist your skin by what you eat. Lycopene, which is found in tomatoes, can help shield your skin from sunburn. Avocados and kale can maintain the elasticity of your skin. Many veggies, such as cucumbers and celery, are high in water content, which can help you fulfill your hydration requirements for glowing skin.

Ingredients For Mixed Vegetable Masala:

  • Potato – I love potatoes. You can use any variety of potatoes.
  • Mix Vegetables – I have used cauliflower, carrots, and peas. You may use any other vegetable like green beans, spinach, methi, etc. Both frozen and fresh vegetables work well in this recipe.
  • Tomato Puree: You can use store-bought or make it at your home. You can also use fresh tomatoes.
  • Ginger And Garlic- I used store-bought just for convenience, you may use fresh minced ginger and garlic.
  • Onion: Feel free to substitute white, yellow, and red onions for the recipe, though I love yellow onions.
  • Oil – You may use any, I used olive oil.
  • Cumin Seeds: The addition of cumin seeds adds a touch of warmth and earthiness to this dish. It also helps digestion.
  • Turmeric – Brings out the perfect color and warmth to the dish.
  • Red chili powder – Gives a nice kick to the whole dish. You may substitute it with paprika or cayenne pepper according to your level of heat.
  • Fresh Coriander: This is a typical herb for garnishment before serving. You can use parsley in its stead.

Serving Suggestions

Vegetable masala is frequently served with roti, naan, boiled rice, or poha. It pairs well with cucumber raita, cilantro mint chutney, and plain yogurt. It is also delicious served with quinoa or crackers. You can also use it as stuffing for parathas. You also enjoy it with a spoon.

How To Store And Reheat Mixed Vegetable Masala?

Mixed Vegetable Masala keeps well for 3–4 days in the refrigerator if stored in an airtight container. I wouldn’t advise freezing it because I believe the thawed cubed potatoes lose their flavor and texture. However, if you really want to freeze I suggest don’t put potatoes while cooking.

Reheat the vegetable masala on the stove or in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or until it is heated well.

Recipe Notes

Stop here for a few moments, and look at the following recipe’s tips and variations they will help you to make the perfect vegetable masala.

  • Instead of using oil, use butter for a richer flavor.
  • For added flavor, add a dash of garam masala just before serving.
  • Cut the vegetables into similar-sized pieces so they all cook at the same time.

Do Indian/Pakistani Restaurants Use Ghee?

Yes, it is true. One of the favorite ingredients used by Indian and Pakistani cooks to prepare this mixed vegetable masala is ghee. Ghee is butter that has been clarified and is resistant to spoilage. Don’t be hesitant to request a ghee-free version of your dish at an Indian or Pakistani restaurant; most of them will usually replace the ghee with vegetable oil.
