My mouth starts watering when I think of the school days when I came back from home and mom had this curry ready for lunch. This is one of the basic Indian curry recipes and can be changed for any of the other vegetables you can add to it. You can also add Paneer in the same recipe to make mutter paneer or add cauliflower or gourd. I’ll edit for the other recipes and post very soon. Do send in any special requests or any queries. Till then, read the recipe for this luscious curry and get applauded by your family and guests!
