Easy Vegetable Coconut Milk Curry

 Easy Vegetable Coconut Milk Curry

 If there is a nostalgic Vegetable curry that I love, which my mama makes; is this curry! It goes so well with Chappati.. you can simply drink it like a soup, it’s that delicious and comforting! You can also have it with any of your choice of rotis, but I find it tastes best with chappati. 

Once the Chappatis suck up all that gravy, it just tastes too good. For me, any other curry just wouldn’t go along with chappati, it always has to be this easy vegetable coconut milk curry 👌🏼 and a choice of side, like chicken fry, prawns fry etc

The highlight of this curry is that, unlike stew or any other curries, the flavor isn’t from garam masala or any spices, it’s just the natural flavors of the vegetables and of course the coconut milk! Sometimes, the curry tends to get watery, so I like to store cashew cubes (by soaking cashews for 5 minutes in hot water and grinding it to a paste with a dash of milk or water and pouring it into molds and storing in the freezer) and throw a couple of them to the curry to bring out the flavor and thicken the curry. 


  • 8-10 pcs Ladies Finger* , chopped into two inch pieces
  • 1 small Potato, chopped into cubes
  • 1/2 of a Carrot, chopped into one inch pieces 
  • 1/2 Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Tomato, chopped 
  • 3 Green Chillies, slit
  • 2 Sprigs of Curry leaves 
  • Salt 
  • Coconut Milk, preferably freshly squeezed **
  • Cashew paste/ cubes *** (optional)
  • 2+2 tbsp Coconut Oil


  1. In a pan, pour the coconut oil and fry the ladies finger and season with salt and sauté for 3-4 minutes on high.
  2. In another pot, pour the coconut oil and add in the sliced onion and sauté, once translucent, add in the green Chillies and curry leaves and sauté. 
  3. Next, add in your chopped tomatoes and close lid and allow the tomatoes to cook well, once mashy, add in the carrots and potatoes and add in salt and pour in 1/4 cup of water and close the lid and  allow the veggies to cook well. 
  4. Finally add in the coconut milk, and once it starts to bubble from the sides, add in your cashew cubes (optional, for thickening and added flavor). 
  5. Enjoy hot with freshly made Chappati and your choice of sides. 


  • *Make sure you get the tender ones, you can check this by breaking off the tip of the ladies finger, if it easily breaks apart, these are tender ladies finger 
  • ** If using fresh coconut milk, do not over boil, if may curdle, once the curry starts bubbling from the sides, the curry is done, you may switch off the flame. 
  • Also if using Coconut Milk powder, mix 7-8 tbsp to 1 cup of milk 
  • *** Soak cashews for 5 minutes in hot water and grinding it to a paste with a dash of milk or water and pouring it into molds and storing in the freezer
