Easy Indian Inspired Mixed Vegetable Curry Recipe

Veggies in Coconut Curry Sauce

Vegetables In Coconut Curry Sauce, Indian Inspired Recipe: delicious with rice, or eaten Indian style with chapatis, or rolled up in dosas (Indian crepes).

I used kale, sweet potato & chick peas in this dish, because that's what I had on hand.

Combinations of cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, potato, peas or carrots, and lentils would also work.

Recipe Tips:

You'll need a wide heavy bottomed sauté pan for this recipe. All the ingredients are cooked in one pot, and it takes 20 - 30 minutes.

If you're having dosas (or rice or chapatis) with the vegetable curry, cook them first and keep them warm, while you cook the veggies.

I warm a plate in a low oven, then cover the cooked breads with a dish towel to keep them warm and moist.
