How to make the recipe?
  1. Take a pan add coconut oil and place on medium heat. Once oil is hot saute curry leaves.
  2. Once curry leaves crackle add chopped green chilies and onion. Saute until onion changes color.
  3. Now add ginger-garlic paste and turmeric powder. Saute until the raw smell disappears from the ginger. If using tomatoes add them now and saute for 4 to 5 mins until tomatoes get dried. If tomatoes have moisture it could curdle up your coconut milk so be careful.
  4. Add all the chopped veggies mix all of them nicely. Put some salt and cover with a lid containing water for 5 to 7 mins. Keep stirring in between if the veggies are getting dried add little water but not too much.
  5. Remove the lid after 10 mins add the thin coconut milk Or tinned coconut milk if using. Place on low heat and cover with a lid.
  6. Simmer for another 10 to 12 mins Or until vegetables are cooked. Lastly add salt, cumin powder, coriander seed powder and thick coconut milk. If using tinned coconut milk then don't add any more coconut milk. Cook on low flame for 2 mins more Or until first boil then switch off the gas. Garnish with few coriander leaves. Serve Veg Caldin hot with rice Or appams.
