Carrot Cabbage Palya {Udupi Brahmin Style Curry}

For this week theme on BM I'm showcasing "Karnataka Dishes". Today I'm sharing a recipe from "Udupi Cuisine". Enjoy the dishes & don't miss the updates. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 47.
Palya is a Karnataka style side dish. This curry is easy to make & taste delicious with the blend of ingredients we use in making them. 
I'm sharing Udupi brahmin style palya here. It's little different from the other palya's I make, but the taste was tempting & we loved it. I love to mix & match veggies when making palya's, but you can just go with single veggie at a time. Green beans, cabbage, carrots, cluster beans, Ivy gourds are my favorite veggies & love to make comforting palya with them. 
Enjoy this comforting no onion no garlic dish.
