Peas kurma recipe | Pattani kurma recipe – Flavourful hotel style pattani kurma recipe to pair with poori | chapati, parotta,biryani and idiyappam. Peas kurma recipe with full video and step by step pictures.

I have given this for the magazine as Mushroom peas kurma. This peas kurma is a super hit at home. We usually make veg kurma | vellai kurma for chapati | poori. We usually grind fennel seeds, coconut, cashew nuts and chilis for making the kurma masala. This peas kurma is slightly different from the usual one we make.

The secret ingredient Kal paasi | stone flower, a chettinad spice which makes the kurma very flavourful. We get this widely in Indian grocery shops. Even this spice gives a wonderful flavour to biryanis too. Do try this kurma and let me know how this turns out.
