Can use boneless and skinless chicken thighs or breasts, whatever you prefer.
Can add an extra tablespoon of cumin seeds if you want more, my personal preference to have just the 2 tbs.
For the mixed vegetables use whatever vegetables you like - I like to use different vegetables depending on the season (carrot, snow peas, corn, cauliflower, broccoli, water chestnuts, potato etc).

If you like your curry with a bit more heat you could add fresh chilli in step 1 or cayenne pepper in step 6.
Serve with rice to soak up all the sauce, or if you prefer on it's own!
