Frozen Mixed Vegetables (Sukhi Subji)

When in a hurry, frozen mixed vegetables can be a lifesaver. Great with any meal, Indian or Western.

I always have a bag of frozen mixed vegetables in my freezer. There are days when I am out of fresh vegetables or simply don't have time to cut them. The best part, my family loves them.

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds

1 16 oz. package of frozen mixed vegetables

1/4 teaspoon turmeric

2 teaspoons coriander powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

1/4 cup water

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 teaspoon lemon juice 

                      

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add cumin seeds and cook for a few seconds until seeds turn golden brown.

Add frozen vegetables, turmeric, salt, coriander powder, cayenne pepper and water. Stir well. Heat through, cover with a lid and simmer for 8–9 minutes till vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.

Add garam masala and lemon juice. If there is any liquid left, increase heat and cook for a few minutes to evaporate it. Transfer to a serving dish.
