MIXED VEG IN COCNUT MILK / VALVAL

This is one of the popular dishes from Konkani household. This is my father-in-law's fav curry.  He had requested me to prepare this many times and I had obliged too. When I prepared this yesterday, we all remembered him very much as he left us an year ago. Whenever he had it, he always used to say...'Wah! What a curry..' I hope you also will say Wah!!!!




MIXED VEGES IN COCONUT MILK




WHAT YOU NEED:
Pumpkin 3/4 cup
Long beans(Alasnado) 3-4 (cut into 2' long)
Yam , 1 inch cubes, 4-5
Potato, 1' cubes, 4-5
Sweet potato 1"cubes, 3-4
Bottlegourd, 4-5 cubes
Tender cashews 7-8
Green chillies 4
Curry leaves 5-6
Asafoetida a little, dissolved in little water
Salt
Coconut 1/2( Prepare 1 cup thick and 1/2 cup thin coconut milk)


VALVAL






VALVAL, MY FATHER-IN-LAW'S FAV.


HOW TO MAKE:


Wash all the vegs and cut all in one inch cubes.
Put all the vegs in a vessel and add slit green chillies and salt.
Pressure cook these vegs without water for 15 minutes. Allow it to cool naturally.


Take out the veges and keep on the fire in thin milk. Stir the veges  carefully. Then pumpkin pieces will become like paste and the curry becomes thick. The curry should be a little thick, but see that not all the pumpkin pieces dissolve in the curry.
Add thick milk, asafoetida, curry leaves and stir carefully. Switch off the burner.
