Spice Boy's Note:
This is not a traditional curry by any stretch. In fact, I came up with the recipe when I was overdue for a visit to the grocery store and I just used what I had on hand. It ended up being so good, I've made it again and again. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand (frozen, fresh, or leftover).
