mixed vegetable kurma or curry - onion tomato based curry with coconut and poppy seeds.this is best for rotis and naan varieties and you can use veggies of your choice.I added carrot,cauliflower,potato and paneer in this recipe.

the recipe is in draft since past two months and this is the first recipe i shot when i shifted to new home.The lighting is good here and now am taking shots to practice here with this lighting.I made this kurma one day ,when i was so bored of making sambar and stews with veggies.I did not planned to add coconut in the recipe but i need some consistency and i always look for a thick gravy consistency which is perfect to serve with rotis.

I added poppy seeds along with it to balance the heat and it has a wonderful property to give balance effect when we add more masala ingredients in the recipe.I made roti in grill pan which is so easier to make nowadays and there is no need for more oily rotis.It stays soft till evening and this is so good na?

lets move on to the recipe.,The recipe is more kinda onion tomato based and i used boiling method for cooking onion and tomato before making it into a paste.I added 2 cashews and 3 almonds here and you can also add any one of it too in the recipe.Used my homemade garam masala in the recipe and it gives much flavor to the recipe.I added it in the final stage so that it will retain its aroma while serving.You can also replace fresh cream with whipped yogurt or milk.
