Hotel Style Vegetable Kurma | Mixed vegetable Kurma | Mixed vegetable Korma (with Coconut milk)

Tamil nadu Parotta kurma  Recipes

Parotta Kurma is a very famous tamil nadu special  dish , even though its origin is from kerala it is very famous in TN . As a kid I fascinate watching those parotta masters in hotels making parottas super fast and perfect . I always used to order parotta kurma when we opted for take out some days and just love those flaky breads with spicy kurma a lot. I make parottas at home always and to go with I made delicious kurma which tasted just like a hotel style. I have already posted Veechu Parotta recipe the 3 way of making the authentic tamil nadu parotta do chk my post as it is of the very popular post in my blog.

Mixed vegetable kurma marries well with parotta but you can have them with chapathi's / roti/ idli dosa or even rice. I personally love this kurma with parottas a lot. This curry is usually coconut based and cashews in them add the extra richness in this gravy.
