I cooked all the vegetables in a cooker along with raw mango and 2 green chillies. And also added a small green chili for the coconut paste. It was very good. The taste of coconut oil added more flavor. I suggest that all should try this recipe.

I have not tried this recipe. but it is similar to the way i make, the difference is that, i cook it in a large kadai, and i stirfry the veg in approx 1tsp oil and let it cook in its own water (no additional water to cook the veg), have to keep checking the veg every now and then, but it works well for me.
