Zucchini - Turnip - Kohlrabi Gravy

Yesterday's dinner was chappati and I wanted to try something different with all the veggies I had. I had Broccoli, two kinds of Zucchini (one is long, dark green & other is short, light green), Turnip, Kohlrabi, Purple Cabbage. I got all those veggies from local Farm stand.             
Onion ---------------------> 1 cup Chopped fine
Tomato -------------------> 1 cup chopped fine
Green Chillies ------------> 2 chopped fine
Ginger Garlic Paste ------> 1 tsp
Broccoli ------------------> 1 crown into small florets
Bell Pepper --------------> 1, chopped into cubes
Zucchini ------------------> 1 Chopped into cubes
Turnip --------------------> 1 Chopped into cubes
Kohlrabi ------------------> 1 Chopped into cubes
Carrot --------------------> 1 Chopped into cubes
Purple Cabbage ---------> ½ cup sliced thin
Chilli powder -------------> 2 tsp
Dhania Powder ----------> 3 tsp
Turmeric -----------------> 1 tsp
Salt -----------------------> A2Y taste
Mustard seeds ------------> 1 tsp
Jeera ----------------------> 2 tsp
v  In a Sauce Pan, do the seasoning with 5 tsp. oil                     
v  Add Ginger Garlic Paste, Onions, Tomato, Green Chillies and fry until the oil comes out. Because of Ginger garlic paste, the mixture will be sticky at the bottom and easily burnt.
v  Add the veggies - Carrot, Turnip, Kohlrabi , Turnip & bell Pepper                    
v  Add Chilli powder, Coriander Powder & Salt. Mix well.              
v  Once it start boiling then add Broccoli, Zucchini, & Cabbage               
v  Close it with the lid; leave it in medium until the veggies are cooked            
v  Garnish with cilantro               
v  Ready to serve with Chappati.             
Turnip & Kohlrabi really enhanced the flavor of the curry and it tasted yum yum yummy. When I went to India last month, I got home made Chilli Powder & Coriander Powder. I guess that is also another reason for the delicious taste.                       
ΓΌ  The Chappatis made with mashed Potato & Wheat flour are so soft and this gravy was exact combo.
