Special instructions

It's not really a recipe that I found anywhere, and the first time I made it it was to use up leftover odds and ends of veggies, and I used a bottled curry sauce. This time I decided to try from scratch. I also used 2 kinds of curry powder, red and yellow. You can use whatever veggies you have around, like okra.
