I love curries with mixed vegetables. My mom used to make them often when we were growing up and I was used to that concept of mixing different veggies to make a curry. I was surprised when one of my friend said she was not used to dishes were random veggies were mixed together to make a curry. I thought it was common in every household.

This curry is right up my alley and I really liked it when served with rice. But it will taste good even with roti. This curry is usually served with dal-bhat.

  1. Though I like mixed vegetables, my husband is not a big fan of it. There are certain vegetables I like to mix up. I don’t mix beans & carrots but would not mind it all.
