Veggie Loaf & Steamed Veggies

I'm very familiar with this combination from many years.Vegetarian Steak Sizzler is one of my favorite dish in a Restaurant at our home town .I love to hear the sizzling sound it makes when it is brought to the table when ready to serve.I never knew what a steak was when I was a kid.After my marriage was fixed I told my hubby about my favorite dish in our Local Restaurant and my hubby responded with exclamation "Is It!!! Do U eat Steak" then I came to know what is meant by steak and later I showed him the menu card when we went to that restaurant and later every time we talk about it,we have smile on our faces.2 days back I went to a grocery store and saw a Vegetable loaf in the frozen section and then got an idea of making this Veggie Pattie shaped as a loaf and after baking/grilling it would look like a loaf of steak and made the sauce as the one I had with Vegetarian Steak Sizzler for our dinner yesterday.That Was a big big hit,so want to share it here.

Vegetable Loaf:

Potato:2 medium(boiled,peeled and mashed)Cabbage:1/2 cup(very finely chopped)Sweet Peas:1/2 cup(frozen)
Carrot:1(peeled and grated)

(Vegetarian Loaf):

1.Heat oil in a pan,when hot add the finely chopped cabbage,grated carrot and fry for 2-3 mins now add the green peas and finely chopped green chilli,mix and now add salt,cumin powder,coriander powder,garam masala,red chilli powder,chat masala and mix well,if the mixture is too dry sprinkle few drops of water.
2.Now add the boiled and mashed potato and mix well so that all the masalas are very well coated to the veggies fry for 2 min on medium flame.
3.Turn off the flame and let the mixture cool down.Take the mixture to a bowl,add lemon juice,bread crumbs,mix evenly and check for the seasonings,adjust if necessary.
4.Pre-heat the oven at 350 degrees.Line a baking sheet with foil,take the prepared potati and cabbage mixture and make it into a loaf and spray cooking spray on top of the loafs and bake in the oven for 12-15 mins after that remove the sheet from oven and turn the loafs to the other side and bake them again for another 10-12 mins.5.By now the loafs will be perfectly done on both sides.Now the loafs are ready to serve.

(Steamed Veggies):

1.Wash all the veggies under cold water and put them in the hot boiling water(other than capsicum,onion and paneer) and let them boil till they are 90% done.Put these boiled veggies aside.2.In a wok,add butter and when it melts saute onion,paneer and capsicum in butter,when they become soft put in the other boiled veggies,toss them so that butter is coated all over the veggies,now sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
3.Veggies are ready to serve.

Place the done veggie loaf on one side of the plate and steamed veggies on the other side.Gently pour the sauce on the veggie loaf and serve it hot.I'm sure you will surely love this.
