Mix Veg sabzi or Mili Juli sabzi is delicious and rich Dhaba style sabji/curry to serve with chapati, paratha or Naan. Mix veg recipe is very simple, but it makes for a rich hearty and creamy curry, that is served in roadside restaurants or Dhaba in North India.
Mix Veg is a semi-dry preparation, which has very thick gravy (almost looks like a dry mixed veg sabzi). You can use vegetables as per your choice. But in this recipe of Dhaba style Mix veg, I have used potato, carrots, cauliflower, beans, and paneer.
This mix veg curry recipe is different from homestyle dry mixed vegetable sabzi. In Dry Mixed vegetable sabzi there is no gravy at all, In this mix veg sabzi, there is gravy. Also, this is Mix Veg curry with Paneer. This resembles more to South Indian Mix Veg Kurma but cooked in Punjabi style. It is one of the best-mixed vegetable side dishes to serve with Dal chapati or paratha etc.
The gravy for the Mix veg sabzi or Mili Juli sabzi is made slightly different way than regular gravy and is quite thick. The cream is added to it which makes it rich in taste as well as calories. Some people add cashew paste to make it even richer but I skipped cashew in this sabji recipe.
Raisins are added to the curry to give it a slightly sweet touch. If you like it little lighter in terms of calories from fat, you can skip the cream and gravy will still come out nice. So you can make the Mix veg with cream or without cream. It's entirely your choice. In Authentic Indian Mix Veg curry, both cashew paste and cream are used.
Indian Veg curries are mostly gluten-free and this vegetable sabzi too is suitable for people who have dietary restrictions and eat gluten-free meals. You can serve it with ghee fulka/ roti or paratha with some plain yogurt or maybe some daal on the side for a delicious and healthy Punjabi meal.
