  • Description: Learn how to make South Indian restaurant style Vellai Kurma recipe| Parrota kurma, a side dish for chapathi, parrota and poori, made using veggies.

     Mixed  veggies*  2 cups
     Oil  4 tsp (preferably coconut oil)
     Onion  1
    Green chili  2
    Cloves 2-3
    Star anise  1
    Milk 1/2 cup
    Yogurt  3 tsp
   To grind
   Coconut  3 tblsp
   Fennel seeds  1 tsp
   Green chili 2 -4
   Cashew nuts 10- 12
   Garlic   1 pod (optional)


 * I used Carrot, beans, potato and green peas.  

Method :

  • In a pressure cooker, add oil and add the cloves and star anise.
  • Slit the green chili and slice the onions.
  • Add the slit green chili and sliced onions.
  • Saute till the onions becomes translucent.
  • Do not change the color.
  • Add the veggies. Cut the veggies according to your preference.
  • Add the veggies to the pressure cooker.
  • Now grind the ingredients, given under the “To Grind” list, in the ingredient table.
  • Grind into a smooth paste by adding little water while grinding.
  • Add the ground paste to the cooker.
  • Add the yogurt to this.
  • Mix well.
  • Add salt and 3/4 cup of water.
  • Cover the pressure cooker and cook for 1 whistle.
  • If the whistle comes very quickly in your cooker, cook till 2 whistles.
  • Once the pressure settles down, open the cooker.
  • Mix well.
  • Add the milk. Use full cream milk for best results.
  • Once it comes to one boil, switch off the flame.
  • I used raw milk. Do not use hot milk. If using boiled milk, add room temperature milk.
  • Switch off the flame.
  • If needed you can garnish with coriander leaves.
  • Check the consistency of the kurma. It tends to thicken slightly after it is cool. So if you are packing for box or consuming after 2 hours, make it a bit thin, so that it will be perfect when you consume it.
Notes:
  1. As we add cashew nuts and milk, you can add 4 green chilis while grinding. I felt mine less spicy.
  2. Kalpasi | stone flower can be added while grinding to enhance the flavour. Do not add more, just a small piece will do.
  3. You can add baby corn, paneer and some cauliflower florets to the kurma.
  4. White kurma goes well with Chapati and poori.
