Vegetables in Kadhi sauce

This recipe has been in my recipe files for ages now. I don't remember where I got this recipe from. But it was there, waiting to be tried out among 50 odd other recipes. On Saturday when I was going through the files, I noticed this recipe and decided to try it out. I must say that this recipe recipe did not disappoint me or S.
