India is very popular for its curries.. Though each region has its own version of  making these curry’s the definition of a wet curry is basically a sauce based on either yogurt, nuts (cashew or almonds), coconut milk or lentils. Today’s recipe is my take on a classic vegetable curry with the addition of coconut milk in it. Its a curry which has a blend of different spices and  is simmered in a thick coconut milk. The spices give a nice aroma and flavor to the vegetable curry.

Do not get over whelmed with the list of ingredients, Its fairly a simple recipe. Though I have mentioned lot of spices, you can completely skip them and just use the garam masala and red chilly powder. Even this way the recipe works just fine.

Enjoy this rich curry with some Indian flat bread (Naan) or with pulav.
