Vegetable Kurma recipe with coconut milk, popular South Indian mixed veg kurma recipe with full video and step by step pictures.

Mixed veg kurma is usually served in restaurants as a side dish for Parotta, poori, idiyappam, and aapam. I always love kurma with minimal spices. I have been thinking for a long time to try out Vegetable kurma with coconut milk. Finally, I tried yesterday and it turned out so flavourful and yum.

I usually don’t add whole spices for the kurma as it will be overpowering the flavor. I wanted the Vegetable kurma to dominate the flavor of coconut milk. The restaurant-style vellai kurma which I posted some time back was a super hit recipe. I used store-bought coconut milk for this Vegetable kurma, you can use homemade thick coconut milk.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Mixed vegetables*
  • 2 onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 tbsp coconut
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 kalpaasi | stone flower
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 green chili
  • 10 cashewnuts
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp Coriander powder
  • Few Mint leaves
  • ¼ cup thick coconut milk
  • Coriander leaves few
  • Salt as needed
  • *I used carrot potato, peas and cauliflower

Instructions

  • First let’s grind the masala for the vegetable kurma.
  • Grind the coconut, fennel seeds, 2 green chili, garlic, cashew nuts and kalpasi into a fine paste.
  • If the cashew nuts are in freezer, soak in hot water for 5 mins and grind.
  • You can add little water while grinding.
  • Keep this aside.
  • In a pressure cooker add 1 tbsp of coconut oil. If you don’t have coconut oil, use cooking oil. But coconut oil will give a very nice flavour, so I strongly recommend to add this.
  • Add 2 finely chopped onions, few mint leaves and 1 green chili
  • Saute till translucent, add little salt while doing this.
  • Puree one tomato and add it now.
  • Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the mixed veggies.
  • Add 1 tsp coriander powder and salt to taste.
  • Now add in the ground masala paste.
  • Mix well and add 1 cup water.
  • Cover the cooker and pressure cook for 1 whistle.
  • If the whistle comes so quick, cook for 2 whistles.
  • Switch off the flame and allow the pressure to release naturally.
  • Once it is released, open the cooker and mix well.
  • Add the thick coconut milk at this stage.
  • Cook for a minute.
  • Do not cook more after adding the coconut milk.
  • Switch off the flame and garnish with coriander leaves.
