Heat the oil until very hot, add the seeds and let them sizzle for
about 15 – 20 seconds. Now add the onion, chilli and garlic and saute
until golden brown. Add the tomatoes, carrot and parsnips and let it
simmer for about 20 minutes or until they are cooked through. Now add
the peas, masala and salt, and continue to simmer for about 4 minutes.
Check for seasoning, add the coconut milk if using and strew the
coriander over the top and serve immediately with plain steamed basmati

The heady cardamom masala complements the natural sweetness of the
carrots, peas and sweet-perfumed parsnips matrimonially. Parsnips
aren’t usually employed in Indian cooking, but I felt they went so
well. It wasn’t an accidental recipe, it was just my logical
conclusion to these ingredients, inspired by the cardamom masala.
