Vegetable Kuruma / Korma – without cashew nuts !

Making gravies/curries for dinner is a complicated affair at least a few occasions.We all love to have varied tastes and flavours.I think curry for chapathis & rotis does matter since we all look forward to the yummy, thick and delicious gravy to dip the hot rotis.Here comes a Vegetable Kuruma belonging  to this category.Simple and tasty.Check it out !


1 carrot,cut into medium pieces
1 medium potato,cut into four pieces
5 beans strings cut into 3 each
1 onion,cut into four pieces
1 tomato,cut into four pieces
few florets of cauliflower (optional)
2 green chillies,slitted lengthwise
1 small piece of ginger crushed
2 garlic cloves,crushed
1 tsp chilly powder
1 tsp coriander powder
few chopped coriander leaves
1/2 to 1 cup water
1 tbsp oil

For the coconut paste

1/2 cup grated coconut (loose)
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1 small piece cinnamon
1 clove
1 cardamom


 Pressure cook the vegetables along with green chillies,chilly & coriander powder,salt and enough water.3 whistles will do.Meanwhile grind the coconut with the spices mentioned adding little water to make a thick, smooth paste.Heat oil in a medium skillet and roast the crushed ginger and garlic till the raw smell disappears.Add the coconut paste to this and sauté till it leaves a nice aroma.Into this,add the cooked vegetables along with the water if any and mix well.Bring this to a boil and simmer till thick.Mash gently with a spoon so that the vegetables will be crushed to join the kuruma and make it thick.Cook till oil clears on top.Garnish with coriander leaves.Serve with rotis/chappathis..
