Mixed Vegetable Kurma (Korma) without Coconut | Hotel Style Veg Kurma

Mixed Vegetable Kurma (Korma) without Coconut | Hotel Style Veg Kurma

Vegetable Kurma or Vegetable Korma, hotel style mixed vegetable kurma in pressure cooker is creamy, aromatic, popular South Indian spiced curry or side dish with parotta, poori chapathi or even with idli, dosa, idiyapaam, appam, variety rice it gets pair along so well. This kurma is hotel style kurma only difference is I didn't used coconut in this version so if you don't have coconut stock and still want to make some kurma now you know what to do.

I personally like this with parotta than idli or dosa. It's difficult to find good kurma these days and in North Chennai there is one small cafe call Ratna Hotel which used to serve best kurma as side dish with parotta, it's still serve the same and the kurma does taste delicious but not like before. The hotel is there for more than 2 decades now and we are royal customer from the item it opened :) We can also make this kurma in open pan instead of pressure cooker, it will only take longer time to cook that's all. Mildly spiced and aromatic with all the garam masala this kurma is real treat and if you eat one time you will fall in love with this one.


I mostly make this with parotta, paratha or dosa specially for dinner, this mix veg kurma also happens to be one of the dish that I have take pictures many times but they never made it to blog, until this time I made this for a weekend lunch along with plain paratha, pulao and decided it's time I should share something which we all love. This is also very good recipe for Iftari, party, get-together as it's simple, quick but taste absolute delicious and all most all love this
