    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    This recipe won a prize in the week of June 15-21st'06 in the Thursday magazine's Cook and Win contest. One of my favourite vegetables to order at restaurants is this. Now, thanks to Meenakshi S. Shankar who submitted this to the magazine, I can cook it in my kitchen, save dollars, use the oil of my choice, fresh vegetables, and yet, have a blast! Enjoy :)

      Wonderful recipe! Very versatile: I used the directions to jazz up the only fresh vegetables I had in the house (bell pepper and onion). As my family likes hot dishes and I did not have the green chilies I used about ¼ tsp green curry paste. The dish was wonderful. I can%u2019t wait to try it with the suggested vegetables!

      Great recipe. I added brocolli instead of cauliflower, mushrooms, sweet potato and baby corn - changing the number servings slightly. Didnt have fenugreek leaves but still tasted great - only added 2 green chillis and it was still quite hot so unless you love hot food I would stick to 2 green peppers. Thanks for the recipe!
