Veg..Gadra beans..double beans..Green beans..peas..potato. .cabbage.carrots.beetroot option.
I like to give my veg a pre boil..I steep the cabbage in boiling water
I fry my potato to prevent them from breaking up
So put ghee into large flat pot
Heat up slightly. .add in the meat and allow to cook in own juices till halfway cooked
Add in the veggies mix it into the Masala. .don't upset the cabbage..now leave to cook.wen water has burnt out and you happy that everything is cooked well..gently mix and turn the cabbage
Add in fried potato and boiled beetroot at this time..leave on low to simmer.crush some fried wagaar over😉
ENJOY..no mushy stew..perfectly cooked veggies..and delicious
