“Like many basic vegetable curries this recipe has it all. Only difference is I add lemon & garam masala powder at the end to give it a more aromatic flavor. You can also add meat in it after frying the onions & cook the meat along with tomatoes & spices till it gets done. Then add courgettes & follow the rest of the recipe.”
