Tips:


1. My Mom-in-law adds almost every vegetable. You can do so too. 

2. If you are using veggies that give out water, you can                         reduce the amount of water you add while cooking.

3. The veggies should be just cooked but not mushy.

4. The last step of adding coconut oil and curry leaves is  

     very important. it gives the dish an authentic flavor and 

    aroma.
