Vegan Kurma

Standard

Vegetable kurma is one of the most common food served with Idly, Poori, dosa, parotta, paratha, chapathi in south India. Kurma can be prepared with mixed vegetables, chicken and meat. We use curd/yogurt for Vegetable Kurma for the tangy flavor, but I have substituted tomatoes for curd. This is a quick and easy to prepare, as I have used coconut milk instead of grounded coconut masala. You can extract coconut milk at home, but due to my laziness I used the store bought one. Let me share the recipe…
