Vegetable Kurma / Korma

Vegetable Kurma / Korma is a very healthy item usually made out of coconut. So, it is a coconut gravy with vegetables in it. Thus, high in proteins and minerals. Goes well with dosa, idli, appam, roti, kulcha and kerela paratha. It is very simple and easy to make with least ingredients.

My mom used to make this along with masala dosa and we used to enjoy its wonderful taste. Even today, me and my husband prefer having this along with masala dosa. Once you have this, I guarantee you that even your preference will change. Mind blowing combo of masala dosa and kurma. Try it and let me know.

  • Number of chilies depend on how spicy they are. I am using 4 as mine are not very spicy.
  • Can add any other vegetables along with potato and onions.
  • If you are more health conscious then you can skip coconut and include an extra onion for the paste.
