Mixed Vegetable Gravy

Mixed Vegetables cooked in coconut milk based gravy is a healthy and delicious tasting side for Roti, Naan or flavoured rice. I used my kids' favourite veggies - carrot, potato, green beans, baby corn. You can add your favourite vegetables or whatever vegetable is available.


  • 2 Cups Mixed Vegetables chopped approximately to equal size
  • 2 Tablespoon Oil
