Veg Kurma – Mixed Vegetable Kurma

June 4, 2017 Dals/GraviesMixed Veg  13 comments

Veg Kurma / Mixed Vegetable Kurma is a perfect side dish for chapathi/poori. This combo is most popularly served in restaurants. Its a good blend of vegetables in a coconut based gravy. This appears in my kitchen quite rarely as most of the time I end up making Paneer Butter Masala, Methi Matar Malai etc.. I usually make this Veg Kurma when I have left over vegetables, in the sense very little of each veggie that is not enough to make a side dish of its own.. 🙂 Post updated with video on 04/06/17

Here is the video..


Now to the recipe…

  2. The veggies must be soft yet firm. Take care not to turn it mushy.
  3. Once u add the coconut paste, the gravy will start thickening. Do not let it boil for a longer time.
