South Style Mixed Veg Curry

South Indian cuisine generally uses a lot of coconut. However, it is used in a balanced way with the required amount of spices, tamarind, etc.


In this delicious South Style Mixed Veg Curry, a colourful assortment of veggies is cooked with a richly-textured paste of coconut, cumin seeds and green chillies.


This spicy curry gets a tangy twist with the addition of tamarind pulp. In some ways, this is a variant of the popular South Indian dish called Avial, which uses thick curds instead of tamarind to perk up the curry.
