 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      large         Potato -- peeled and cubed
    1      large         sweet potato -- peeled and cubed
    1      cup           green beans -- whole
    1      cup           carrot -- peeled and sliced
    1      cup           green peas -- fresh or frozen
    1      cup           tomato -- diced
      1/2  teaspoon      turmeric
    1      teaspoon      salt
      1/2  cup           coconut shreds -- unsweetened
    3                    green chiles -- 3-4
    2      tablespoons   Ghee
    1      sprig         karhi leaves -- fresh
    1      cup           yogurt -- plain
 
 Par-boil the vegetables except the peas and tomatoes in 2 cups of water
 with the turmeric and salt. Add the left out vegetables towards the end of
 when the others are cooked. Grind the coconut, green chilies and yogurt in
 a blender to form a smooth paste (I use my hand held blender to mince the
 chilies and add them to the coconut and yogurt). Add the paste to the pot
 containing the vegetables. In a saute pan melt the ghee and sizzle the
 Kahri leaves for a minute or so. Add to the pot and simmer for a couple of
 minutes. Combine and serve.
