During the weekends, I always find some vegetables left over in my fridge. I either make vegetable curry or spicy vegetable kuruma. This is one of my comfort dish, which taste great with coconut rice and dosas as well. Addition of lotz of vegetables & coconut makes this dish rich and healthy. And this is one among of few dishes where any kind of vegetables can be added in any proportions. Great dish for the lazy weekends :)
