Nilgiri Kurma recipe| Side dish for chapathi

Nilgiri Kurma recipe, vegetables cooked in mint coriander based gravy a perfect side dish for  chapati and poori. I wanted to try a side dish for chapathi with the base we prepare for making vegetable biryani. I have tasted a similar version of korma in a restaurant buffet, and they named it as Nilgiri kurma. So i named it the same. Later when i googled, i came to know that there is a recipe for popular Nilgiri Chicken kurma. This Nilgiri Veg kurma turned out so delicious and it pairs very well with rotis and pooris. The addition of coconut milk in the end gives a nice taste to the kurma. The best crowd pleaser recipe, also goes well with Kuska biryani too. I made this Nilgiri kurma in my new Prestige Pressure pan(4 litres).
