Mixed Vegetables with Mushroom


This mixed vegetable dish is cooked quite often at my place especially during winter. This curry is very light in flavor and its smooth creamy texture is just perfect for to accompany Butter Naan, Kulcha or simple fulka. If you have family members who are fussy about having vegetables you can try his dish. Since milk, cream and mushroom is used it is nutritious and good for kids too. You can add or alter vegetables of your choice. But select those vegetables which are hard in texture after cooking and hold its shape. Else the body of the curry will go into toss.
