The only nontraditional thing about this Indian dish is the frozen vegetables. To make it vegan, substitute light coconut milk for the evaporated milk or heavy cream.
  • ½ cup basmati rice
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • ½ small white onion, cut into chunks
  • 1 ½ Tbs. minced fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp. garam masala or curry powder
  • ¼ tsp. plus ⅛ tsp. ground cardamom
  • 2 Tbs. golden raisins
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, such as green beans, cauliflower, carrots, lima beans, and zucchini (12 oz.)
  • 1 7-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained (¾ cup), optional
  • 3 Tbs. fat-free evaporated milk or heavy cream
  • 1 Tbs. toasted slivered almonds, optional

1. Cook rice according to package directions.

2. Purée tomatoes, onion, and ginger to paste in food processor or blender.

3. Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add garam masala and cardamom, and cook 30 seconds, or until fragrant, stirring constantly. Add tomato purée and raisins. Simmer 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens slightly.

4. Stir in frozen vegetables; chickpeas, if using; and evaporated milk. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 6 to 7 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with almonds, if using.

This looks delicious. Can i substitute the cream to make this vegan? Or can i just leave it out?

I made this last night and love it. I used 1 can diced tomatoes instead of fresh, steamed fresh vegetables and lite coconut milk. This is a recipe that can easily be tweaked to your preferences. Thanks for all your great recipes!

I'd skip the dairy and use Thai coconut milk or, as Donna suggests, cashew cream. No reason not to make this vegan so everyone can partake. I'd also bump up the garam masala, my all-time favorite spice combo.

Great dish. Needs tweaking for spice. Was almost like a stew with minimal Indian flavor. I even added curry powder and more garam masala. Needs more warmth and richness. I'm used to Kormas being sweeter and creamier. This was my regular curry base. Good base recipe.

This was good but it does need a little more seasoning. Next time I'll add garlic and more curry powder.

This looks good

This is very good. I used fresh veggies and some frozen Lima beans. I added some chillies for a little head and served cucumber raita as a condiment.

Oh wow this was awesome! So full of flavor and easy to make. I used brown jasmine rice instead. Great for lunch the next day too! I added to my repeat list.

I made a few tweaks (extra curry and cardamom, the addition of some garlic and greek yogurt instead of evaporated milk). I loved how easy this was to throw together, how different it was from my regular quick meals and how filling it was. I'm looking forward to having the leftovers for dinner tonight!
