Vegetables in Coconut Gravy

This is one the curries that I usually serve with Ottil pollichathu or Neeru dosa that posted recently. This is a simple and very basic recipe for a vegetable curry. Every time I make tis curry, I add and subtract few things from the recipe given here. However it is, it tastes great with the above mentioned pancakes.. I always make it with the vegetables available, sometimes just using potato! Here I have used carrot, potato and cauliflower. You may use your own choice and combinations of vegetables like green peas alone, green peas,potato and cauliflower, green peas potato and carrot etc.....and everything will come out good and will easily go with the above mentioned Ottil pollichathu or Neeru dosa. I sometimes add a tomato after the ginger and garlic are cooked and sometimes omit red chilli completely and add just turmeric powder anda couple of green chillies instead...This curry is similar to the Green peas Curry in Coconut milk that I posted before. Well, these kinds of curries are adapted from my Mother-in-law who makes them regularly for breakfast. She makes them really well and they tastes real yummy with Ottil pollichathu.


Ingredients:
2 Tbs coconut oil
20 curry leaves (1 large twig)
½ tsp mustard seeds
1 large size potatoes diced (1 cup)
1 medium carrot diced (1/2 cup, 100 g)
1 ½ cups small cauliflower florets (½ of a medium size cauliflower)
1 onion sliced (1 cup)
3 garlic cloves, grated
Small piece of ginger grated
1 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder
1/3 tsp turmeric powder
1 ½ cups hot water
1 cup thick coconut milk
Salt as required.

Preparation:
1. Heat a pan to medium high, add oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add the leaves and sauté for few seconds.
2. Add the chopped onions and salt and sauté until soft. Add grated ginger and garlic and sauté for a minute. Add turmeric and chilli powder and sauté for few seconds.
3. Add all the chopped vegetables, stir well for a minute or two. Add hot water, cover lid and cook till done.
4. Add the coconut milk and just boil once.
5. Serve with Ottil pollichathu and Neeru dosa .
