Nepali Vegetable Curry

Nepali Vegetable Curry

One of the most simple and tasty mixed vegetable dish is this Nepali Veg Curry I had at a road side food stall along with some steaming hot rice. The fresh vegetables grown on the terai or foot-hills of The Himalayas make this wonderful vegetable. I find this to be a real easy way to serve all the vegetables at one go. You can give it a try, and I am sure you would love it as much.
Preparation Time  :  10 minutes
Cooking Time       :  20 minutes

  2. this made a very bland curry- are the portions of spices right in this recipe?

  3. This is a non spicy curry. Not the typical spicy curry available in shops. It is generally eaten at homes and served to children . In case you want a spicier version add more of chili and other spices.
