MIXED VEGETABLE KURMA | SIDE DISH FOR ROTI

 

MIXED VEG KURMA

I got this recipe from my friend. I have tried this kurma many times with many combinations and finally hooked up with this recipe. I always love hotel kurma and when u dig it , u’ll find only some onions and vegetables and not any spices.As my friend’s recipe was similar to the one i expected , i tried it..It was very flavourful & tasty .. It is a best pair for roti, poori , parotta and idiyappam..I’ve already posted a mixed veg kurma , mom’s version..If interested click here..

INGREDIENTS

  • Carrot – 2 nos (small)
  • Potato – 1 no (big)
  • Beans – 8 - 10 nos
  • Peas – 1/4 cup

To temper & saute

  • Jeera – 1 tsp
  • Bayleaf –1 no (optional)
  • Big onion – 2 nos
  • Tomato – 2 nos ( small) ( I grind the tomato to paste & add )
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp ( i use 1/4 tsp)
  • Garam masala powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Kasuri methi – A pinch (optional)

To grind

  • Grated coconut – 3 tbsp
  • Fried gram dal – 1.5 tsp
  • Cashews – 5 nos
  • Green chillies – 2 - 3 nos ( i used 2 ) 
  • Dhania / coriander seeds – 1/2 tsp (optional)
  • Fennel – 1 tsp
  • Cinnamon – 1 inch piece
  • Cardamom – 1 no
  • Cloves – 3 nos
  • Ginger – 1 inch piece
  • Garlic – 6 cloves

METHOD

  • Grind all the items given under “to grind” to make a paste by adding water..Grind tomatoes separately and set aside.
  • Wash and chop all the vegetables , pressure cook adding little salt , 1.5 cup of water and set aside..Make sure the vegetables should not be mushy..

veg kurma step 1

  • In a kadai , heat oil ,add jeera & bayleaf.. Then add the onions and saute till it turns transparent. Now add the tomato paste or tomato pieces and saute till raw smell leaves or till the pieces turns mushy.Add little salt to make it faster..

veg kurma step 2

  • Then add the ground paste and saute well .. Now add the turmeric powder , red chilli powder and garam masala powder & kasuri methi. Mix well and saute for few mins. Finally add the cooked vegetables along with the water. Add salt if necessary and some more water. Allow it to boil for sometime till u get a nice aroma. Adjust the consistency..

Garnish with coriander leaves if u wish. Serve hot with roti/poori !

 

MIXED VEG KURMA PLATE

 

NOTE

  • I wanted the kurma less spicy , so i added less chillies. U can add more based on ur requirement..
  • Instead of cooking vegetables in prior , i have tried cooking it along with the spices .It gives a different taste and smell.Try any method based on ur wish.
  • Adding red chilli powder is optional. If u want , u can avoid green chillies while grinding and add red chilli powder alone..
  • No need to use mint , curry leaves or coriander leaves for flavour. I don’t use any..
  • If u r using dried peas , soak it overnight and use ..

  6. To me the earliest memories of the best combination for roti is this kurma, having had in a hotel in my hometown quite regularly. Love your kurma's colour and texture.
