A simple alleppey mixed vegetable curry is very easy to make with lots of colorful veggies cooked in a rich and creamy coconut milk. I love coconut milk based dishes because of its rich and delicious in taste. I got this recipe from my neighbour uncle, he is a chef at star hotel in Chennai. He gave me one book which has a lot of vegetarian dishes. This is one of the dish which I tried from that book. This coconut milk based vegetable curry is supposed to be little watery but I made it thick with little sauce. I cooked the veggies in a coconut milk by the time I open the pan, vegetables has absorbed all the coconut milk. When I tasted the vegetable it was so soft and yummy because of addition of coconut milk which adds a nice flavor to the curry and makes it more appetizing. Try this alleppey vegetable curry cooked in a coconut milk and serve it with chapathi or roti or phulka or rice. Just roll it with chapathi and eat it for lunch or dinner.
