  • 500 g potatoes
  • 400 g peas
  • 100 g carrots
  • 100 g onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 200 ml tomato sauce
  • 300 ml water
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 2 tsp curry paste
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • fresh herbs
  • salt (himalaya/ sea salt) and pepper to taste


  • Peel, wash and cut your vegetables. In a pan, heat the ghee, add the chopped onion, paprika and carrots. When soft, add garam masala and curry paste, let them roast for 30-60 second or until the flavors start to unfold.
  • Add water or vegetable stock, potatoes, cover with a lid and let it simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes.
  • Add peas(fresh or frozen), tomato sauce and let it simmer again for another 10 minutes. Optional, you can add some cream or coconut milk for a smoother texture and taste.
  • Serve it with fresh herbs of your choice. For example, dill is a great companion for peas.
  • Dill has the property of increasing Pita and decreasing Vata and Kapha energy. Adapt it to your needs, so you can use a herb not only for flavor, but also like a medicine. This is, of course, the main core of Ayurvedic diet. Use your food to stay healthy and also to rebalance your body in case of disease.
