This is a semi-dry preparation which is a mixture of all sorts of vegetables cooked in coconut and yoghurt. This is a healthy way to eat your veggies since there is minimal use of oil and you can pick and choose the vegetables you would like to use. Also, please remember to avoid eggplant and lady’s fingers, or any other vegetable that tends to get, well, slippery. J
