Very nice veggie meal which can either serve as a side or main. Very flavoursome and easy to prepare. Recipe comes from mom Safikar. 


  • 1 onion
  • 2 tsp pepper paste
  • 3 chopped and peeled tomatoes
  • 4-6 carrots (depends on their size)
  • 6-7 potatoes
  • salt, pepper and paprika
  • 200 gr fresh peas


Chop the onion and fry it off a little, then add pepper paste and continue frying for another minute. Add peeled and chopped tomatoes and spices, cover and simmer for around 5 minutes. Peel the carrots and potatoes and chop into rough but equal chunks so that they all cook at the same time. Add the carrots and potatoes into your pot and add boiling water just enough to cover the vegetables. Simmer for 20 minutes with the lid slightly ajar. Add peas and cook another 10 minutes or until all the vegetables are soft. Check for seasoning 5 minutes before end of cooking. To make it a bit more spicy you can also add chopped hot green peppers.
