Indian Curry Recipes

Red Bean &Pumpkin curry


Today I tried some different curry for chapthis. It was my all-time concern of what side dish to make for chapathis. Usually potatoes are the best combination but everyday potato can cause problem to our health. In our family all loves red chori. Red chori & pumkin curry is a very tasty, less spicy & healthy side dish which makes a perfect combination with chapathis. Even Bachelors will love to make in their kitchen as it is very simple.
