Vegetable Yogurt Curry 蔬菜咖哩

I've been seeing quite a lot of people using yogurt to replace coconut milk in curry. So, I gave it a try and it didn't disappoint me. In fact, yogurt's natural sourness is very suitable to the curry.

In this curry, you can find five colors of vegetables in it. Purple from the onion and eggplant. Yellow from the potato. Green from the okra, green chili and mint leaves. Red from the tomato. White from the fresh button mushroom. I'm very satisfied with my meal with only the curry and steamed rice.

It is so much healthier to use yogurt! And it looks just as good. I like your 5 colours combination of vegetables too. The more the better.

This dish is definitely much healthier than the regular curries. I like using yogurt in curry too it give a sourish taste.
