Mixed vegetable koottu curry

POTATO -CARROT - PEAS Koottu CURRY

This curry is an all rounder . It goes well with rice, appam , chappathi , idiyappam or whatever you have.
I learned it from my mom. I used to make it when I dont have many vegetables .Its rich in gravy so you don't need lots of side dishes with this.

So here goes ,
Things needed :
4 medim sized potatoes , cubed
2 carrots , cubed
1 handful peas frozen or fresh
1 green chilly
Curry leaves 1 spring

Grated Coconut or dessicated coconut- 70 gms
Chilly powder -3/4 tbsp
Coriander powder - 1 tbsp
Meat masala - 1 tsp

1/2 Onion , sliced
Oil - 3 sp

Preparation method :
Peel the potatoes and carrots cut into chunks .Slice the chilly . Add enough water in a pan and cook all vegetables along with the Peas.

While its cooking prepare the coconut curry paste. Roast the coconut until brown & when it is done remove the pan from the heat .add chilly powder and saute for 5 seconds. Grind with coriander powder to make an oily curry paste. Add this to the vegetables , cook until oil separates to the top.
Add meat masala , mix well and let the curry stay in heat for further 3 min.

Heat oil in a pan fry the onions until brown and curry leaves, add these to the curry.
Serve this curry with rice. You can refriegerate the left over for later use .Tastes great even the 2nd or 3rd day.
