Vegetable Coconut Curry recipe with step by step pictures. Coconut Curry is a curry made with nuts, vegetables and coconut milk. However, It can be made with veggies, meat or even paneer. Though this curry is a home-style dish & is made with simple ingredients, It tastes very delicious and is not creamy like PANEER BUTTER MASALA or SHAHI PANEER.

DO you know how exciting it is to make something different? For me, this curry is a little unusual, cause I am not a south-Indian nor do I belong to a coastal region. But, I tried to make it as authentic as it is.  Believe me, it came out so good that I fell in love with this curry. One of my south-Indian friends gave me the recipe for Vegetable Coconut Curry a long time back. Now it is included in my regular menu.  

Lastly, I am sure this simple yet unique recipe will impress you and will mark its place on your daily menu. If you are looking for some more such recipes, then I can suggest a few from my blog category Indian Dry Curries. Firstly, Shahi Stuffed Mushroom Curry. Secondly, Aloo ke gutke – A Pahari Street Food. Furthermore, Peanut onion capsicum crunch. Some more coconut recipes are
