Mixed Vegetable Perugu Talimpu

Second week of BM 30, I have chosen cooking with curds as my theme for this week. Going to post three recipes with curd as main ingredient. In Andhra cuisine we use curd a lot in gravies and also other recipes like perugu vadalu, majjiga doselu, challa chekralu (a type of muruku made with sour curds). Specially a number of perugu pachadi ( boiled vegetables in yougurt gravy)varieties are there in Andhra cuisine.
mix veg perugupachadi 1                                                                                This recipe sounds like Avial but with little changes. Avial is a traditional Kerala recipe which is made with boiled vegetables in coconut gravy. In avial they use 2 table sp of sour curd  to give a sour taste to avial using curd is optional in avial recipe. If they use raw mango in avial they don't add sour curd. In this perugu talinpu we use only sour curd, not any other ingredients like raw mango, tamarind or lemon. Adding mixed vegetables is totally my version. normally we make perugu talimpu with onion or tomato. This is not perugu pachadi in perugu pachadi we don't add coconut. So you can say this is fusion of perugu pachadi and Avial. hope you all like this. Let's check the recipe
