Spinach Curry with Mixed Vegies

This mixed spinach with veggies is my childhood comfort food – minimally spiced but extremely refreshing to the taste buds!
I have suddenly realized that my blog contains more non-vegetarian recipes than the veg, but that really doesn’t mean that we ignore the veggies altogether. I love vegetables and I am not at all a choosy eater in case of veggies.
I love everything – green, red, yellow, white, orange – whatever color they may be. This particular recipe is so close to my heart that I can have my whole meal with this only forgetting about fish or meat. This was my comfort food from my childhood. My mom’s version was the best one, but I tried my best to produce almost same result. I am sure I am ninety percent close! :)
