For my veggie son I made him a nice Bean, potato, brinjal and zucchini curry.
2 cup beans (boiled until soft)
2 small brinjal, peeled, halved lengthwise, sliced
4 zucchini, unpeeled, sliced into coins
3 potatoes, quartered
1 onion, halved, then sliced
3 garlic cloves grated
½ tsp cumin

2 green cardamom, seeds only
2 cinnamon sticks
2 bay leaves
½ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp jeera powder
2 tblsp curry powder
1 tsp hot kashmiri masala
pinch of aesoephatida (hing)
2 medium tomatoes
1 big sprig thyme (or 2 small)

Soak brinjal in salted water.
Process tomatoes in food processor with half the bunch of dhania including stems.
Fry onion, add seeds, bay leaves and cinnamon stick.
