Mixed Vegetable Stir-Fry (Cabbage, Drumstick and Brinjal)


This is my second mixed vegetable stir-fry; we use to go out for dinner and lunch atleast once in a week to Anjappar, Indira nagar. I had this stir-fry with my meals, it was good and the combination of these vegetables was too good and thought of trying out this dish at home. Finally, I prepared this for my Tamil New Year lunch. Let us move on to the recipe…
