Mixed Vegetable Kurma

           Most of us love to cook and experiment new dishes right?? I too love and started my cooking from my school days(higher secondary) 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 hurry. I just started by helping by mom with cutting and doing small works in kitchen, later learned myself to cook rice, sambar n rasam , Typical south Indian samayal :)  After marriage, we came here- life in US is bit hard work, more free time( before kids). That too for me, i left alone in home without neighbors, no one to talk around, My H leaves home by morning 8.30 n use to come by 6.30 till that time i am alone...alone..alone :( Now at least i know blogging but 4.5 hears back i know nothing with computer. But through browsing i came to know more blogs and websites i use to wonder h they share these recipes online?? h people comment on their recipes?? h they share their pictures?? h to create a blog?? This was my computer  G.knowledge :)
            Yes, i am a Maths-biology student and no nothing in computer n internet. I know h to talk using Skype n gtalk. h to chat online...that's it. since i use to talk with Him thru these networks only(before marriage ) I use to try recipes from their blog, but most of the blog which i was following during 4 years back were writing now :( Or else i could comment on them now :) Like that, once i tried this green color kurma once and i liked it more but later forgot the recipe and tried by myself but couldn't get that taste. And now , when i visited  Anusha's site "Tomato Blues" for Blog Hop Wednesday, i saw this mixed Vegetable Kurma, same green color yay!! i got it!! i tried this recipe and the taste was same which i made 4 years back.
