Basically, the recipe is made in wide Pot which is called as Handi, form that handi name is given to this recipe which is prepared in wide-pot but in house, there is no any facility regarding wide-pot so we make in general kadai. Yet the cooking techniques and recipes remain the same which gives the same taste. Generally, in restaurants, Veg Handi is served in round shape Pot, which is called as “Handi.” Though I didn’t have it to serve, so I served it in a serving bowl.

Veg Handi is a simple mixed vegetable curry recipe, which is prepared with onion, tomato, ginger, garlic and cashew paste. And if you want to go for Jain Version then just leave onion, garlic and ginger in the recipe. And served with roti, naan and rice.

Then parboiled them with some salt or steam the vegetables in an idli cooker or steamer. Moreover boiled vegetables gave proper restaurant style taste to this recipe.
