Yogurt curry is very tasty dish and it can be made in different ways. It is one special christian traditional dish and usually they are serving it for their wedding celebrations. In my home we have made it so many times because all in my family like this very much. I am using this as the side dish with hot plain Rice for lunch. We can make it by adding raw Banana, Colocasia, Cucumber and Ash Gourd, ripe Banana, Ripe Mango and Ripe Pineapple. It can make without grated Coconut also.  Today I made it with natural and healthy Colocasia which is there in my home. This is very tasty and healthy dish and it is super combination with hot plain Rice for lunch. This is medium spicy dish and it can make very easily at home. This will be thick with attractive natural Yellow colour. This recipe is very useful to anyone who likes spicy less dishes and it is very suitable for kids also. This dish is also serving as the side dish for Vishu, Onam. I am really happy to share to all. It is very simple and easy method so everyone can make it with limited ingredients.
