There are many variations of this recipe, which can be onions, tomatoes or almond paste and cashews, or a combination of the two. I not added the almond part, but you can add it. Another option is to steam the vegetables individually, perhaps in a steamer or idle cooker, and then place them on a tomato and onion base. Although this technique can save your time, but boiling vegetable adds flavour to this dish. Finally, adding cooking cream to this recipe is completely optional, depending on personal preference.
