  2. This veg gives a sweet taste so adjust chilli accordingly.

  4. As I say for my all veg stir fries – you can add scrambled egg towards the end before adding coconut .You can just shift the veges to the edges ,break an egg in the centre ,+ add salt and scramble it and cook it. Then mix the veges together and garnish with coconut OR Scramble the in a separate pan and later add to  the veges.
