Mixed vegetable is an Indian curry I learned from a beautiful lady friend, who invited me to her house for a dinner when I was in India. So this weekend I invited few of my friends for an India inspired dinner, this is when my Indian friends recipe came to my rescue. She told me about how to make it in very easy steps, but I never mustered the courage to try it due to the fear of spoiling its essence.
This beautiful vitamin rich dish made me quite popular in my friends circle. I did justice to the recipe and my teacher. Everybody raved about Mixed vegetable curry’s taste and flavor at my dinner table. It was a star.
