Blogging Marathon# 62: Week 4/ Day 2

Theme: No Tomato Gravies

Dish: Mixed Vegetable Curry in Coconut milk gravy

After yesterday’s yogurt based curry, today I have a coconut milk based curry that is creamy and delicious. Coconut milk is a great vegan alternate and is much healthier than using heavy cream.

This recipe is from Mallika Bhadrinath’s 100 gravy recipes cookbook. Along with coconut milk, a freshly ground spice paste gives this dish creaminess and a nice spicy kick.

It is a very colorful curry with all the veggies. I added some black eyed peas to add some protein to the dish. Serve this with rice or roti for a delicious meal.
