Print Friendly and PDF
Saravana bhavan hotel kurma
Any South Indian would love to try a recipe if its titled as “Saravana Bhavan Hotel Style”. I am no exception to this. I have tasted Saravana Bhavan hotel vegetable kurma for parotta in Chennai before marriage. I love try all the recipes of it that I come across in my fellow bloggers blog. Recently I saw this Saravana bhavan hotel style mixed vegetable kurma recipe for parotta and chapathi in Amudha’s blog. I tried it for Sendhil’s lunch box to pack with roti by following an easy one pot method. It smelt and tasted very similar to most of the hotel style vegetable kurma. I loved it very much. I packed this kurma and soft Chapathi for his lunch box & I had it with some store bought frozen parotta for my breakfast. It tasted great for both. So you can make this kuruma as a side dish for roti and parotta as well. If you don’t have all the vegetables in hand, just try adding potato,peas and make it as potato kurma. Kids would love this combo. So try this recipe and don’t forget to smell your hands after you finish eating this kurma. It would be awesome !! Ok, lets see how to make this most popular, super flavorful Saravana Bhavan Hotel Style mixed vegetable kurma with video and step by step photos and video.

Check out my Saravana bhavan hotel white kurma and  hotel style coconut chutney recipe too.

Also have a look at my collection of 20 kurma varieties for chapathi, poori, idli and dosa.

Enjoy with chapathi or parota.It tasted great with dosa too!

NB: As per the actual recipe,vegetables has to be cooked before adding the masala. But I made everything in one shot. Still the taste was good.
Note
  • Grinding part is the highlight of this kurma. So please don’t omit any ingredient from it. No worries if you don’t add khus khus.But the remaining are must.
  • I did not add mint leaves as I din’t have it. Don’t forget to add it if you have them. It adds a nice flavor to this kurma.
  • Adjust the quantity of chillies and red chilli powder based on your taste.
  • I used fresh green peas here. If you are using dried peas, soak it overnight in required water.
  • Some hotel kurma recipes called for using water + milk in equal ratio. But I never use milk as I don't want to mix curd & milk together. So you can try this for variations if you like.

Is it good idea to add both milk and curd to the dish. It tends to create digestive issues.

Chitra said...

I too never use milk in this recipe. But I have mentioned it just for variation as some people prefer it. You can use only water & curd in this recipe. It will turn out well.

Unknown said...

Enjoyed both cooking and eating.. thanks for the recipe..
