What other vegetables can I put in indian food?

I´ve learned to make indian food lately. And quite well too.

We´re talking currys here with the standard sauces of ground nuts, tomatoes, cream or coconut milk etc. But have you all noticed that most restaurants of indian cuisine, ONLY use two vegetables in their dishes?

These are onions and paprica. You see this over and over again, and that makes me wonder if theres something else I can put in, that tastes good, but doesn´t defy Indian cooking tradition too much.

I thought of carrot, but I think root vegetables would be too hard. And yes I know they use potatoes in VIndaloo, but I´m on low carb diet so I dont eat them.

What other vegetables would be authentic to put in a chicken curry?
