Vegetable Curry / Rajasthani Cuisine
Written by Jayashree
Published on November 18, 2019

This vegetable curry from Rajasthani cuisine is a blend of unique vegetables. Raw tomato and long cucumber along with a medley of other vegetables and spices makes a tasty side dish.

The love for trying different dishes from various cuisines landed me to this dish which I had jotted in my book many years back. Yes, a crazy soul, who loves to save these. We had raw tomatoes and thus made this and it was good.

Raw tomatoes are still available and hope you will try making it. I loved the fact that rare veggies as long cucumber and raw tomato are used in it. Moreover, it is a no onion garlic recipe. This dish pairs well with any Indian flat bread.

I had earlier shared a chutney using raw tomato, it stays good for 2-3 days if refrigerated.
