Notes

Note:
  • Serve this curry with hot roti's or parathas. You can also make the South Indian Ven Pongal or Khichdi and serve this curry as a gluten-free meal. To make it a delicious vegetarian Thali I would recommend my crunchy cucumber salad or the spicy cabbage salad.  
  • This recipe uses a lot of vegetables that are only sold in Indian grocery stores. You can always substitute them with any hardy vegetables of your choice or even a bag of frozen mixed vegetables
