Chapathi ,Parotta ,Idiyappam, Ghee rice, oothappam, Dosa, Idli are excellent dishes that goes  Very well with kurma.  This Kurma is really finger licking good and I am sure you will eat extra chapathi just for this kurma. This is one of my favorite one from my school days. I make few varieties of kurma with slight variations,  each tastes different and yummy. Will post one by one . Crisp and crunchy vegetables, mixed spice blend with flavor of coconut mmmm yumm.... here goes the recipe.

Cashews - 5
Saunf - 1 tsp

Garlic - 4 pods(small)
Green chilli -4

2. Heat oil in the pan, Add the cummin, Saunf and Bay leaf.
3. Now add Sliced onion, curry leaves saute till it turns to transparent and now add the tomato.
4.Add the Garam masala and chilli powder. Let the tomato get mashed.
5. Add the cooked vegetables and the ground mixture.
6. Add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of water and let it cook for some time until the raw aroma disappears.
7. And the kurma gets to slightly thick consistency. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve this accompaniment with your favorite main dish.


1.You can add soya chunks too with this.
