I make Mixed vegetable curry regularly, however I always tend to use green beans also.

The picture looks delicious!

Thank you Latha, we can avoid ginger-garlic paste and garam masala and add coriander and cumin regularly with different combinaations like beans, gobi and beet root.

Thank you kumudha! I use either peas or beans.

Wouldnt adding garam masala at the end(i.e after adding water) give a distinctive taste? It'll be more like its not cooked properly!!

Hi Anonymous!
In our family, we use garam masala to give the curry a finishing touch like garnishing with the chopped coriander leaves.
If we add the garam masala before adding the water, we will not be able to feel the aroma of the curry.I always use homemade garam masala. Before powdering the ingredients, I dry roast all the ingredients so that it will not give any raw smell to the curry.
