Mixed Vegetable Kurma/Korma

Mixed Vegetable Kurma/Korma

Usually we eat Kurma with Roti or Paratha, Have you ever tried it with Rice, they just taste awesome. This is one of my mom's signature dish and she sneaks in a load of veggies in it. The colour of this Kurma couldbe different if you are not using beet root.


Onion - 1 (Medium, Chopped)
tomato - 1 (Medium, Chopped)
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 Teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - a Pinch
Red Chilly Powder - 1 Tablespoon
Green Chilly - 1 (Slit)
Coriander Powder - 1/2 Tablespoon
Garam Masala - 1/2 Teaspoon
Bay Leaf - 1
Coconut Paste - 1/4 Cup
Mixed Veggies - 2 Cups (Par Boiled Potato,Cauliflower,Peas,Carrot,Beetroot)
Salt and Oil


In a pan, heat some Oil and add the Bay leaf and after 10 seconds, add the Onions and cook. Once the Onions are cooked add the Tomato and cook it is mushy. Then add the Ginger Garlic paste and saute.

After 2 minutes, add the veggies and saute them well.

After 5 minutes, add the Dry masala powders (Chilly powder, Turmeric powder, Garam masala and Coriander Powder) and saute.

After couple of minutes add some water (Say 2 cups) and cook the vegetables with lid on.

Once the veggies are cooked and the raw flavor of the Masala is gone, add the coconut paste and stir. Switch off and serve.


If you are using Potatoes,use  par boiled Potatoes.

Sometimes,I add all the veggies and water and cook it in pressure cooker for 2 whistles. If you just cut the veggies appropriately it will not get over cooked and will save lot of time.

Just depending on their cooking time, cut them into Big or small pieces and pressure cook them.

Coconut Paste is made by Grinding the grated coconut with required amount of water to a smooth paste consistency. If you want you can add Poppy seeds to this too. However, grinding Poppy seeds is not easy I will write a post on how to grind Poppy seeds.
