Vegetable Garam Masala

20131219-191304.jpg

Today was calling for something healthy with a kick. This vegetable garam masala hit the spot. It has the perfect assortment of vegetables with just the right spice. In fact, there is room for a little more heat, but you can leave it as-is so the dish is adaptable to sensitive palates. Remember, the longer the masala sits, the stronger the flavor (heat) profiles become. Feel free to play with the vegetables used, just keep an eye on how much liquids you use.

Cheers!
