Spicy Mixture Curry

Image
Today's recipe is so simple that even a 5 year old can make it with little help from parents.  Its as simple as that. I very well remember those days when we used to have Curfew and people were not supposed to go out of house.  Schools were closed,  grocery shops and other necessary stores were  also closed.  People were in need of vegetables  and other important things. That  is the  time when my mom  used this spicy mixture  and made a  side dish for roti or rice.  Don't remember the exact year when this happened  but I guess I  was around 5 or 6 yrs old  when this happened. The curry  tasted so delicious that even after when we grew up, me and my sisters used to please mom to make  this curry for our  lunch boxes. 

So this spicy mixture goes to the 3rd day of BM 60 under the theme "Family Recipes." This curry tastes better if served hot with rice or Roti. Recently  I have even tried to put this curry in between toasted bread, believe me it was awesome.  Here goes t…
