Vegetable kurma is a traditional south indian curry recipe made using mixed vegetables such as beans, potatoes, carrots, peas etc. The recipe is shared with detailed procedure and a video.
Here I have shared this special south indian cuisine with a step by step video procedure…Korma recipes are quite common and they are good to go with rotis, parathas and even rice.
They are made with different versions and they use a lot of different masalas in different versions.
Here, I am bringing the best traditional version of the kurma which is perfect to be eaten with rice or roti. It has been made with different vegetables and masalas.
There are many methods to make this veg koma and here I am posting one of the common methods and shall be posting other variations too as I keeep continuing.
I have been wanting to post this kurma long back but could not as I was updating other recipes too. I love to make korma recipes be it with egg, veggies, chicken, mutton etc.
Every version of the korma tastes better and hope to post many more special kurma recipes to be tried by vegetarians and non vegetarians.
Here I have made use of some veggies and the masala paste that is used here is of freshly grated coconut, cashewnut nuts, poppy seeds(khus khus) etc.
This is a very simple veg korma recipe and not very complicated and the veggies should be cooked, mixed with the masala paste and they should be cooked together and served with roti, parotta or phulkas.
Below I shall be sharing a simple version of south indian style vegetable kurma which is easy to make and I am showing the video version of the kurma along with detailed written procedure.
Hope my blog readers try it out and do give us your feedback on this recipe.
