For day 6 of BM#5, I made this root vegetable curry with yam, potato and carrots. I saw the recipe in eenadu.net and wrote it down in my diary and have been meaning to make it for quite some time now, finally yesterday I made to post for the marathon.

I thought the use of coconut milk in the curry gives it a different dimension, almost a Keralan twist to the dish. It is mildly spiced with the sweetness from the carrots and coconut milk and slight spiciness from the green chilies. I used frozen yam/ suran/ kanda and it made making this dish in 30 minutes possible. If using fresh, microwave all the veggies to cut down on the cooking time.

  1. Good one. I tried adding coconut milk in curries, but my husband says it lends a sweet flavor to the curry and doesn’t seem to like it. I love the usage of coconut milk though!
