Usually kurmas are doesn’t take place in my kitchen frequently, though i make chapathi almost everyday. Me and my hubby are not a great fan of korma and my kids too. One day when i made rotis for dinner, I was very clueless what to make as a side dish for roti and finally i landed up in making cauliflower and peas korma. Without any much complaints everyone had this.
