    in a heavy bottomed saucepan, and saute onion, ginger, garlic and chilli until soft. Add spices
    and fry for 30 seconds. Add all the vegetables, toss well and add coconut cream bit by bit as they
    cook. To make raita, put yoghurt in fine sieve and leave to strain for 15 mins. Grate cucumber
    with skin on. Chop mint leaves. Peel, seed and dice tomatoes. Combine vegetables with yoghurt and
    seasonings. Chill. Chop coriander leaves. When vegetables are cooked and a thick sauce has formed,
    add coriander and lemon juice to taste.
