Kadai Vegetable Gravy | Chapati Side dish

Kadai Vegetable Gravy
Kadai Vegetable is a spicy Indian gravy served as a side dish to Indian Flat breads. Indian spices are freshly ground and added to the gravy which adds more flavor and taste to the recipe. I have added Carrots, Green beans, cauliflower and potato. Mix and match vegetables of your choice to suit your taste buds.
