More vegetables to add: Any or all of these can be added>> Diced carrots (1 cup), diced sweet potato, diced zucchini.

Coloured Bell Peppers: Any coloured bell peppers/capsicum can be used. I had green peppers in my fridge, hence I used those.

Using Fresh Root Turmeric: In this case, peel and grate same quantity of fresh turmeric.

Alternate to Butter: Best replacement is cold pressed coconut oil.

WFPB options: Just eliminate the butter, all the rest of the ingredients are plant based only.
