Burmese Vegetable Curry Recipe

This Burmese-style vegetable curry is subtly flavored with coconut milk, ginger, curry powder, and turmeric. The flavor of this dish is exotic but not overpowering. The vegetables listed in this recipe are what I used when preparing the dish for this post, but any of your favorite fresh vegetables can be substituted.
