Carrot Cabbage Palya {Udupi Brahmin Style Curry}

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.
