Mix Veg Kurma

Mix Veg Kurma
There are 2 ways of making this dish. We can either cook vegetables seperately and then add masalas and blend them well and bring to a boil or add all Ingredients in Pressure cooker and then cooking vegetables along with the masalas in one stroke.

I have followed method 1 here.

Ingredients :

Potato - 3 – 4 medium sized
Carrot - 2 medium sized
Beans - 100 grams
Cauliflower - ½ medium sized
Peas - 200 Grams
Onion - 3 – 4 medium sized
Tomato - 2 – 3 medium sized
Ginger Garlic paste - as required
Garam Masala /
Salt /
Coriander Powder - as required
Bay Leaf / cinnamon - 1 each
Saunf - ½ spoon

To grind together :

Grated Coconut - 2 spoons
Green chillies - 2 – 3 medium sized
Cashews - 4 – 5 pieces
Cinnamon - 1 piece
Saunf - ½ spoon
Khus Khus - ¼ spoon (soaked in water 10 minutes before grinding)


Cut all vegetables in even size and cook in pressure cooker for 1 whistle. Remove excess water and keep aside. In the same pressure cooker add oil and add saunf, bay leaf and cinnamon. When done add ginger garlic paste and fry till oil seperates. Now add onions and fry till golden brown. Add garam masala, salt and coriander powder and mix well. Then add the tomatoes and cook well till the gravy is well blended.

Now add the cooked vegetables and mix well. Do not mash the vegetables. Add the ground paste to this and cook well. Add water as per your requirement. If the gravy is watery mix 1 spoon cornflour to little water and add to the mixture.

Mix Veg Kurma is ready to be served with Parotas / Rotis.
