Many Nutrients In a Single Dish

I like to make mixed vegetable dishes mainly to get a unique taste and get many nutrients at a time. This curry comes out tasty. I used capsicum, carrots, onions, cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes, and tomatoes in this.

I call it a red curry because I used dry red chilies to make it spicy. Spices and cashew nuts give a rich flavor and thickness to this gravy side dish. Just dig roti, poori, chapati, or flatbread into this curry and enjoy eating this heavenly combo!

Over to the detailed recipe.
