Vegetable poriyal / Curry

When I usually have many kinds of vegetables like cauliflower, beans , carrot,etc.., I used to do this mixed vegetable curry. This can also be done with any one of the vegetables seperately.But usually it tastes wonderful, when we use more variety of vegetables.


s that can be used generally:
  • Cauliflower
  • Beans
  • Carrot
  • Cabbage
  • Green Peas
  • (Maize can also be used)]
  • Cut Vegetables -2 cups
  • Moong dal- 2-3 tablespoon
  • Green Chillies-3
  • Onion-1
  • Oil- 1 tablespoon
  • Salt
  • Lemon juice- few drops (if desired)
  • For seasoning: Mustard,Urad Dal, Curry leaves.


  • Wash the vegetables and cut into larger pieces.
  • Cook the cut vegetables in salted water along with moong dal.
  • Take care that the vegetables are not overcooked.
  • Use the right amount of water to cook the vegetables.
  • Stir it with a spoon in intervals so that the water does not spill out while cooking.
  • Heat the oil in pan and add the seasoning items as usual.
  • When it starts spluttering add the green chillies.
  • After few seconds add the onion and fry till it becomes transparent.
  • Now add all the cooked vegetables and the moong dal after draining the remaining water.
  • Add salt if needed and fry it for 2 minutes before removing from the flame.
  • A colorful tasty mixed vegetable curry is ready to serve.
  • Add few drops of lemon juice, if desired while serving.
