Mixed Vegetable Kurma and Happy Ugadi!!!!

Happy Ugadi!!! To all my dear Friends, Visitors and fellow Bloggers!!!
Yummy!!! see the picture, it looks very colorful right!!! I know you started craving for it!! I had it with naan. I cannot describe in words how delicious it was. I say naan is the perfect combo for this curry, but roti bhi chelega!!!! you can even make this curry heavenly by adding few chunks of panner (Look at my face !!! because I have no panner in my fridge). Now coming to the recipe
I prepared this recipe for only 2, and that too for one serving. So, I mentioned very low quantity of ingredients if you wish to make more try to double the amount mentioned.

Remember, to take off your curry after cooking form the pan to a serving dish, if your curry still remains in the same pot it may cook more because of heat. because of this it may become very soft and mushy.
