Kathamba thooran/Mixed Vegetable Stir Fry
Kathamba thooran3Kathamba Thooran, very long time i miss this mixed vegetable fry.. mom prepare this super delicious fry with very few combination of vegetable.. i often made some beans and carrot combo or beans and cabbage combo, this is the fisrt time to try it out with a small batch of mixed vegetable.. and this was a lovely experience..

Thooran are meant to South Tamilnadu dishes, which vegetables are blended with coconut masala, and without adding water the compete dish should cook, that the really taste of this vegetable fry.. Kathambam is nothing but a mixing of things.. here mixing of vegetable to make a super delicious fry.. I had few more thooran recipes in my page.. this one is pretty special with loads of veggies, Even if you kids are any one in your home doesn’t like a particular vegetable, hide it here and serve.. they’ll not find the taste of a single vegetable, with all other vegetable taste will blend each other..
