Vegetable Curry

Photos updated on 2nd May 2010

I seldom cook curry at home, but since ready make curry pastes can easily be found in the hypermarket these days, I would love to give it a try.

This low carb and high fiber vegetarian curry is classified under our healthy eating style. It consists of a wide variety of fresh vegetables, including egg plant, lady's finger, potato, cabbage, carrot, green chili and deep-fried bean curd. In short, vegetable curry is a versatile dish that you can adapt to your list of fancy vegetables. The vegetarian dish assembles all the goodies into a delectable spicy curry that is no less tasty than the normal curry. Furthermore, fresh vegetables imbue natural sweetness to the curry and the spices impart the dish with irresistible aroma. Served with rice or roti canai and you'll be able to savor a great meal.

Happy Deepavali & Happy Holiday to all Malaysian!

Somehow my version never turns out so photogenic. Usually the brinjals get all mushy. =)

Hi Little Box, the curry looks nice - is it very spicy?

Yummy Koh, not really spicy. Even my hubby who can't take spicy food also eat up a big portion of the curry. :)
Thanks for dropping by.
