Mixed Vegetables - I used 1 medium size carrot chopped, 20 green beans chopped, 1 medium potato peeled and diced, 1/4th of a medium sized cauliflower crown.
I used oil to temper but you can use Desi Ghee or Butter.
Adding sugar helps to retain the fresh green colour.
I did not add cream or half and half, but if you want can add 2-3 tbsp in the end.
With the same spinach gravy, instead of mixed vegetables you can also add cooked potato/aloo, roasted tofu, cooked channa/chickpeas.
