Butter Beans Kurma - Easy Kurma Recipe

Butter Beans Kurma Recipe

Butter Beans Kurma is a great side dish for Poori,Chapathi, Idli, Dosa etc.I made Butter Beans Masala and Amma suggested me to make kurma with the remaining butter beans as its a great combo and yes it worked so well.The aroma was so good, the flavour butter beans lends to this kurma is just awesome.I made this kurma today to pair up with Tandoori Rotis.This kurma method is very easy as we can put evrything together,pressure cook and your kurma is ready.

I used my Ultra pressure pan to make this kurma as it was easy and messfree too.

My Notes:

  • You can adapt this kurma for any vegetable you like.
  • Let the kurma boil well after coconut paste is added else the raw smell will retain.
  • This kurma becomes thick, so adjust consistency accordingly.
