I made this for lunch today and enjoyed it. What I really like about this recipe, is that its so easy and so quick to make. Moreoever, it is tasty and can be enjoyed with rotis, rice and white bread as well. I had it with white bread. Next time, I'll make "Chitranna rice" (yellow rice with peanuts) and enjoy this dish with that. I also had some yogurt alongside with this curry. Thanks, good recipe!
I ended up using this as a base recipe for my final result; had other items in the fridge I wanted to use up, plus wanted to have leftovers for lunches later in the week. So I added a diced zucchini, some pre-cooked grilled chicken chunks, a few mushrooms, and some chili paste for some extra heat. Then I included a can of coconut milk because we like plenty of sauce to soak up the rice. I forgot the garlic, so would definitely add it next time, but the result was still good. It just needed a little more salt, no big deal really. My husband and I both thought this was yummy!
Great, easy recipe with ingredients I usually have on hand. I added yellow squash and spinach to up the veg, but would leave out yellow squash next time because it overpowers the flavor in a weird way. The rest was delicious. Served with plain yogurt and pickled ginger. Next time I might add another tomato and use chicken stock instead of water. Thanks for the great veggie keeper!

I'm a stay home mom of two little boys. My husband is a meat and potatoes kinda guy, my little fellas will eat anything, and I'm a vegetarian. One of my favorite things to do is sit and read a cookbook from cover to cover! My favorite cookbooks are ones with pictures of all the dishes.
