This is my favourite again from the Kerala side. I never had the right vegetables which they use specifically for this dish. Yet I managed with what I had. This is the second time Iam preparing this dish.

The main vegetables in this dish are mango, green plaintain, drumstick, pumpkin, yam.. I didnt have any of those.

brinjal - 1 (cut into cubes)
peas - a handful
radish - 1 (cut into cubes)
beans - a handful (cut into 1" slices)
carrot - 1 (cut into cubes)
potato - 1 (cut into cubes)
avaakkai - a hndful (cut into 1" slices)
cauliflower - 1 cup (cleaned and cut into florets)
curd - 1 cup
salt to taste

To grind:
(to a fine paste)
green chillies - 3
cumin seeds - 1 tsp
ginger - 1" slice
coconut - 2 - 3 tsp (grated)

To temper:
coconut oil - 2 tsp
curry leaves - 8 - 10
jeera seeds - 1 tsp

- pressure cook the vegetables till tender
- add oil in a pan
- add the jeera seeds, curry leaves and fry
- add the cooked vegetabels and ground masala
- add salt
- now add the curd and bring it to a boil and serve.
