Cauliflower Peas Kurma Recipe

I love kurmas with dosas, rice and chapatis...So if I make this for lunch I make the quantity a bit more to be enough for dinner too. Attimes , the lazy me preplans for dinner too :)

This is easy with just grinding without sauting and comes in handy for lunch. Ammas version of vegetable kurma is a bit lengthy process with sauting and grinding but still it has an unique taste. So I use the above recipe for cauliflower peas kurma and ammas recipe for veg kurma :)

Cauliflower Peas Kurma Recipe
My Notes:
  • While cooking/pressure cooking cauliflower and peas, make sure its only half cooked else it will turn mushy while it gets boiled with the kurma.
  • The qunatity of gravy is more in this method, so you can also use it as a sidedish for rice.
  • The same method can be used for making vegetable kurma also.
  • You can make the consistency a bit watery if you are serving it for rice.
  • I used fresh cauliflower and peas, you can alternatively use frozen ones too.
