Spicy Vegetable Curry

        This veggie dish is spicy enough, with lots of vegetables mixed in a tomato base, that is flavored with Indian spices.... This curry goes really well with rotis, chapathis, dosas, parathas, nans, pooris or any type of bread... Keeping the base gravy the same, any one vegetable or combination of vegetables can be used..... Those suggested are, either only potato or only cauliflower or both potato and cauliflower, including or excluding carrots, beans and peas....Here i have added potato,carrot & beans which is my favorite combination...

        Those who are interested (like my hubby) in trying a variety dish in your vegetarian menu apart from normal is your recipe..
