Mixed Vegetable Kurma Recipe / Green Veg Kurma Recipe

 Most of us love to cook and experiment new dishes right?? I too love and started my cooking from my school days itself. Being a working woman, my mom definitely need my help in the kitchen that too during weekdays busy morning hours, making both breakfast and lunch in a short time. I just started by helping by mom with cutting and doing small works in the kitchen, later learned to cook rice, sambar n rasam  and most of the typical south Indian recipes :)  After marriage, we came here- life in US is bit bore no hard work, more free time( before kids). That too for me, I left alone in home without neighbors, no one to talk around, V leaves home by morning 8.30 n used to come at eve 6.30 till that time I was alone. Now at least I know blogging but 4-5 years back I know nothing and even not much knowledge with computers/browsing etc as I am Math & Biology student didn't know much about these things. I had no idea about how people share these recipes online?? How people comment on their recipes?? how they share their pictures? & above all how to create a blog?? 
 With the help of google, slowly learned to use computers/Internet effectively. So whenever I need to try some new recipes I started browsing and my search would ended up in some of the popular blogs that time. I used to try recipes from their blog, but most of the blog which I was following during 5 years back were not active now and some blogs are not even available Or else I could comment/share their link now. Like that, I tried this green color kurma once and we liked it more but later forgot the recipe & recipe source. I tried to recreate but couldn't get that taste. And this time for Blog Hop Wednesday when I visited  Anusha's site "Tomato Blues"  I saw this mixed Vegetable Kurma, green color kurma which I tried long back from other site. Immediately, tried the recipe and the taste was almost the same which I made 4 years back. Thank you Anusha for sharing this recipe and sure a keeper recipe.
