Everyday Mixed Veg Curry

One of my foreign friend asked me if i cook this elaborate everyday for dinner as i maintain the cook blog. To be honest I don't cook this elaborate everyday, in fact no chef i guess. :-) As i work full time and in the midst of chauffeuring my kids to daycare and their evening activities, usually i don't find much time to prepare an elaborate dinner. But, I do manage to rely on my everyday easy recipes in such rush time. So today here, I am presenting one of such easy vegetable curry that goes very well with freshly made roti or store bought ready made chapati. Though i like freshly made soft rotis to serve my family, most of the times i do buy ready made chapthi and will stack in the freezer. They will come to rescue in such rush evenings for dinner or we can still feed those unexpected guests with tummy full meal. But i am selective with my picks when i buy chapati and make sure i buy only chapati made with whole wheat or multi-grain. When I am not making from scratch at least I have to be little picky, Right!!! :-))

  • Today I have added bell pepper and baby corn also to my curry to increase vegetable servings. 
  • You can add variety of vegetables like Cauliflower, green beans, baby corn, brocolli etc.
  • If you add baby corn or broccoli, add these after step 8 and cook it for 3 or 4 min. If these soft vegetables gets cooked under pressure, they get mush up.
