Vegetable chettinad curry recipe

I had already mentioned in my earlier post about the kitchen connect event we had in our bloggers meet last month. I got my ingredient from Sheetal. It was Khus khus or poppy seeds. She wanted me to make chettinad curry. I made it and it tasted great and the aroma was divine due to the spices in it.

Here are the ingredients and procedure just as Sheetal had mentioned.
