Hi!!!Namaskar!!!Hope you all are doing good.I’m also doing good Wheat parotta was my last recipe.Got so many pictures and good responses from my followers Those who haven’t tried it,don’t forget to make a try Since the time I did the wheat parotta video,I’ve been getting requests for the saravana bhavan style veg kurma recipe I cannot reject such requests from your side. I’ve already posted the video for Kerala style vegetable kurma,long back So do try both vegetable kurma from CW Also send your feedback Many followers asked me whether I have any siblings or not? I’m a single child and so is my husband and we both have all the pluses and minuses of children who have grown up all alone I’ve been thinking of telling you something….. Many followers asked me to share the secrets of my hair I don’t have much hair and that’s why I always appear in this hairstyle If I had thick hair,I would braid my hair.Earlier I used to tie my hair in that style and to clip some jasmine flowers on my hair when I had thick hair But I don’t have that much hair now.So I’m not able to use that braid hair style or to tie my hair.It doesn’t look good nowadays That’s why I always left my hair like this like a ghost” as my viewers said.(taking it as a compliment) If I know any secrets for the growth of hair,I’ll definitely share it with you. Whenever I escape from my hair fall problem,I’ll definitely share the tips with you Now let’s see how to make vegetable kurma in saravanabhavan style ( CW version) Let’s begin to prepare vegetable kurma in Tamilnadu style Here I’ve taken 1 carrot,2 potatoes,12-15 fresh beans and 1/2 of one big onion You can add whatever vegetables you prefer like green peas,cauli flower,mushroom etc I’m taking these vegetables only Cut the vegetables into medium or small size I’m going to cut these into small size.Will show you after cutting them all The vegetables are chopped finely into small size I’ve already washed the vegetables before cutting them Add the onion pieces also The size of onin pieces doesn’t matter because,they will mashed up when you cook the dish (No need of more onion) Put the vegetable pieces into a cooker With this measurement you can serve upto 4 people.Since we are four,I always make dishes in the quantity from which I can serve for all 4 of us So adjust the amount of ingredients,with the number of people at home Add 1 glass of water into it Put some curry leaves into it Add enough salt Mix them well.Always be careful while adding salt to any dish Cook these vegetables for 1 whistle in medium flame After 1 whistle,switch off the flame and let the pressure settle down by itself So let’s cook this for 1 whistle Meanwhile,let’s grind the remaining ingredients Take a small jar Put 4 tbsp of grated coconut, 5-6 cashew nuts. Don’t want to soak the cashew nuts,you can put them directly into it. Add 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder Instead of chily powder I used to add green chillies in this dish.If you want you can add 1/4 tsp of chilli powder in it This is not that spicy,so I’m adding 2 green chillies.If your green chilli is too spicy,add only 1 These can vary from person to person. Now we need spices The taste of the dish changes if you add more spices Thus,adding only 1 whole cardamom, 2 cloves and a very small piece of cinnamon Do not add a large piece which may change the flavor of the dish completely The important ingredient which gives the flavor to this dish is the fennel seeds So add 1/4 tsp of fennel seeds into it If you don’t like that flavor,reduce the quantity Add a small piece of ginger and one clove of garlic.Cut them into small pieces 3-4 curry leaves Add 1/4 tsp of coriander powder.It would be perfect,so no need to add more Finally add a small piece of onion like this Cut them also into small pieces Add a very little water just to get it grinded well Do not add more water.Now grind the ingredients into a very fine paste By then the vegetables also will be ready The fine paste is ready here When the vegetables are cooked well,add this paste into it They are cooked well but they aren’t mashed up Now add the coconut paste into the vegetables Take out the paste completely from the jar by mixing with some water Now we have to add enough water into it. Since we have added cashew nuts,onion and coconut in this,the gravy becomes thick when it cools down Thus add enough Hot water into it Cook this gravy for some time in order to get the vegetables blend well with the coconut mix As I always says,cook the dish for atleast 10 minutes in medium flame Let me check the salt now. Adjust the salt if required I haven’t added any oil in this curry Also I don’t prefer to do the seasoning procedure in this dish If you want,you can season it with some curry leaves and mustard seeds in refined oil I’m preparing this as an oil free dish Thus it becomes more healthy You can also add some oil when you boil the vegetables,if you want We can easily make this tasty kurma without adding oil in it Its a very easy recipe.So I thought to share it with you all You can easily make this easy and tasty dish in the morning and give it your kids I’ve been getting requests for this saravana bhavan style veg kurma Its not at all perfect but 95% of its taste I can assure you I used to repeat this in my every video that do not use the spices in a large quantity We won’t be able to eat a dish,if the level of the spices is high in it Last week,on my way back to Dubai,I had food from the food court inside the Kochi Airport I gave the order for idiyappam and vegetable stew because it was the time for breakfast Vegetable stew,as you all know,its a very simple and light dish.That’s why I ordered it But I wasn’t able to eat that food and unfortunately I was forced to stop eating it because of its spice level The gravy was full of cloves,cardamom and cinnamon. I couldn’t eat it and thus wasted the food There might be so many other people like me,who have been forced to waste the food because of its over spice level Some people think that,the dish would be perfect if you add more spices in it It depends on the taste buds of each individual Even though,minimum usage of garam masala gives you the authentic taste of the dish This is my opinion only.Those who oppose this opinion,kindly excuse me Let it become a thick gravy,not too thick or not too thin.But till it have a medium thickness Cook till the raw smell of the coconut mix goes So cook it in medium flame I haven’t added tomato in this gravy.Instead of tomato ,I’ll add some curd into the gravy later If you prefer tomato insteadof curd, add 1/2 of 1 tomato into the vegetables in the beginning and boil them together If you don’t want to add tomato,add 2 tbsp of curd in the end.it should not have that much sourness Do not boil the gravy after adding curd Let it boil for 10 minutes in medium flame Those who haven’t tried my Kerala vegetable kurma recipe,please do watch and make a try I got this recipe from my friend,Deepa nair Thank you so much Deepa for this recipe.I love this very much Its very easy recipe and we can make it very quickly. No need of sauting.Just boil the vegetables,grind all other ingredients and mix in the vegetables and boil well.That’s it We won’t get such an easy recipe like this.So thank you once again,Deepa I’ve already posted this recipe in my blog,long back I’ve got so many good responses from my followers,after they made a try with the help of my blog recipe You also don’t forget to try this You can have this with idiyappam, parotta,chapathi,poori etc My son used to have this even with idly and dosa So choice is yours Its almost thick gravy now.It will become more thick when it cools down Switch off the flame and add 2 tbsp of curd which has no lumps in it Use a fork to beat the curd and remove all the lumps in it It may float on the gravy as small balls if it has lumps in it If the curd is too sour,add 1 tbsp.And if it is not that sour,add 2 tbsp of curd into it Mix them properly You are free to add tomato instead of curd.But remember to cook tomato along with other vegetables Do not boil after adding curd.So this is enough Finally add some finely chopped coriander leaves and mix well I’m going to serve this with wheat parotta for my kids Let me check the taste now Let me add a little bit of salt again So the saravana bhavan style veg kurma is ready here Everyone should try this recipe and have it with your favorite combination See you all with a new recipe,till then Thank you
