When I was enjoying with my family in a five star resort at the back waters of Alappuzha a few years back, I happened to taste this delicious dish served in the buffet. I have appreciated and also requested the chef the recipe for this dish which he obliged magnanimously!  

Whenever I prepare this side dish in my home, the quantity of chapathies I make usually would always increase! The combination of the vegetables and the few different spices enhance the taste tremendously. The chef named it as ‘Mixed Vegetable curry’ and I have renamed as ‘Alappuzha vegetable curry!”
