Spring’s upon us and soon the best of vegetables will be out of the market. But before that happens, quickly churn out this curry and make the most of it. Mixed vegetable curry is an easy and healthy option for your lunchbox. This curry is a perfect option when you can’t think of anything to cook for your lunchbox and you have tonnes of leftover vegetables in your refrigerator. Well, that’s exactly how I came up with this recipe.
