Yay I am back again with one tasty recipe. Its brings me great joy to get back to blog often. Life has been busy but I am keeping up with my promises to post often. Vegetable Kurma is a constant occurrence in our household, its one way that vegetable goes inside which otherwise is difficult. Its simple, easy to make and only with practice does one get the perfect kurma and of course a perfect recipe. The coconut based curry is made with cooked vegetable of your choice and it tastes amazing with chapathi/ idiyappam/ appam. Each person has a different version to this tasty curry, but here goes my version to the age old dish.
