Idiyappam Kurma - Vegetable Kurma For Idiyappam

Print Friendly and PDF

In Tamilnadu hotels, Idiyappam is served with vegetable kurma and sweet coconut milk. Idiyappam kurma is a popular restaurant combo. As I mentioned in my idiyappam recipe post , usually we make varieties of idiyappam when we have guests. Recently I tasted idiyappam in some restaurants. I loved the way it was served with sweetened coconut milk and mixed vegetable kurma. So I too started making the same way for my guests. WhenI  make idiyappam for breakfast , I make this kurma and coconut milk as accompaniments as it is heavy and takes more time to digest. But If I make idiyappam for dinner , I just prepare some i idiyappam varieties like lemon , puli or paruppu idiyappam which are easily digestible. I got this idiyappam kurma recipe from Mrs.Mallika badrinath’s cookbook. I have tried this several times. It comes out very well. We love this veg kurma a lot. Do try this for idiyappam , you’ll love it for sure. I think it tastes good for rotis as well. But I have not tried it personally.
Here is the link for mixed vegetable kurma I make for roti. Check if interested !

I use MTR lal mirchi powder & kashmiri chilli powder in most of the recipes. I use shrink type red chillies for chutneys. U'll get a nice color.. Try and let me know :)

Really yummy recipe. I did as per the recipe with just the change of milk. I used coconut milk instead of normal milk to get the consistency. Had a milk sweet and spicy/hot flavor at the same time. :) enjoyed both your idiyappam recipe and this one. Thank you :)
