Indo chinese vegetable curry
This is a simple and easy indo-chinese vegetable curry which is spicy-tangy taste. I used carrots, bell peppers, french beans, cucumber in this curry with homemade schezwan sauce. Homemade sauce has an advantage of personalising to your taste and it can be prepared 2-3day ahead and stored in the fridge in an air-tight container.
This curry can be served with steamed rice or any indo-chinese fried rice (click for recipe link)
I served this with mushroom fried rice (click for recipe link)
