p2s-vEGKurumaVegetable Kuruma ( Korma) is the typical accompaniment with Chapati and sometimes even with Poori or Idiappam. Multiple variants of this side dish are common in south Indian cuisines, from state-to-state. The recipe I share here is of a customized healthy version of the Veg- Kuruma, using less oil and coconut. One can always increase the quantity of coconut and oil to make it richer.
