Hyderabad cuisine is a princely legacy of Moghul ancestry and has developed its own unique cuisine over the centuries making use of key ingredients such as coconut and peanuts.

Hyderabad Curry
This melt in your mouth curry tastes even better than it looks.

I have recently come across a fabulous cookbook called Cooking with Ranchor: A Garland of Indian Vegetarian Dishes. It contains dozens of delicious and nutritious recipes. I tried one the other day and just had to share it. Prepare yourself for a different kind of culinary experience and enjoy the little piece of India that this recipe offers you in your very own kitchen. I hope you love it as much as I did.

Gather all your ingredients together at the start to make cooking a little easier.

You will need…

1 cup carrots, sliced
2 cups broccoli, florets
1 cup potato, sliced
4 tbsp ghee/oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 dried red chilli
1 tsp ginger, grated
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp coriander powder
½ tsp asafoetida
1 tsp salt
1 cup water (add more if desired)
¼ cup smooth peanut butter
¼ cup tomato paste
1 tsp sugar

Cooking the Curry
Cooking this curry is easy if you follow the steps.

What to do next…

1. Heat ghee/oil; then toss in the cumin and mustard seeds, chilli and ginger and fry for 30 seconds.

2. Add water, tomato paste and peanut butter, and then cook for 3 minutes.

3. Add potato and carrots, and then all the powdered spices.

4. Bring to the boil for 5 minutes; then lower the heat and simmer for a further 7-8 minutes.

5. Add broccoli and simmer until cooked.

6. Add salt and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

7. Garnish with coriander leaves.

I served this dish with Basmati rice. However, you might like to try an authentic Indian bread such as pappadums, chapatti, roti or paratha.

Bon Appetit.

The combination of spices and flavours make this picture perfect dish unforgettable.

Preparing this meal was really simple and easy; therefore don't be discouraged by the long list of ingredients. The combination of these spices creates an amazing taste sensation. Once you're all stocked up, it is just a case of adding the correct amounts to your dish. Furthermore, when your palate gets used to these flavours you can adjust the amounts as well as the varieties of vegetables to suit you, thereby adding your personal touch to each dish.

There are plenty of places around Brisbane from which to source your ingredients. Ranchor sells these spices, along with his cookbook at his cooking classes, Cooking with Ranchor. However, you can also purchase these spices at other locations around Brisbane. A great place to go is All India Foods at Woolloongabba, but for even more ideas check out this list of Indian Grocery Stores in Brisbane.

Happy cooking.
