Mix-Veg Poriyal (Vegetable Stir fry with coconut)



Mix Vegetable poriyal is a mix of all vegetables cooked and tossed with freshly grated coconut. This recipe is very popular in South India. It’s a must dish in South Indian weddings. It goes well with rice as a side dish and also with any type of chapati,parathas. The fresh coconut gives a sweet flavour to the dish.

I am linking this recipe to priya’s  Diabetic-Friendly Food Week. Vegetables are really good for diabetic people.
