White Vegetable Kurma /Vellai Kurma – Restaurant Style

I know most of you must have had Vegetable White Kurma in restaurants served as accompaniment for chapathis/rotis or pulavs/biryanis. Wondering how to make this delectable White Vegetable Kurma? It is made by grinding coconut, poppy seeds, coconut, milk and green chillies. This kurma has a rich and creamy texture and  a very healthy dish. Do check out my Mixed Vegetable Kurma here.

Here’s how to make White Vegetable Kurma with step by step photos…

Preparation time: 20 minutes     
Cooking time: 15 -20 minutes

Method

Wash and cut all the vegetables and keep them aside. Meanwhile soak the poppy seeds in warm milk for about 10 minutes.


Now grind all the ingredients mentioned under grinding along with the poppy seeds to a fine paste with required amount of water and keep it aside.


Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add all the ingredients mentioned under tempering and wait for nice aroma to arise.


Now add the onions, green chillies and saute until golden brown color. Add the ginger & garlic paste and saute until raw smell vanishes.


Add all the vegetables, salt and fry for about a minute. Add about 1 cup of water and pressure cook for 1 whistle.


After the steam releases open the lid and pour the ground coconut paste and stir well.


Add the ¾ cup of milk, mint leaves, chopped cilantro and let it cook for another 5 minutes.


Finally add the yogurt and switch off the stove.


Super delicious, rich and creamy restaurant style white vegetable kurma is ready to be enjoyed.

Serve this white vegetable kurma with any kind of variety rice, white rice, chapathis, rotis, naans etc.

Suggestions:
  • I have made this kurma in pressure cooker, you can do the same in a pot except it takes more time to cook the vegetables.
  • You can add any number of vegetables, depending on availability.
  • Adjust the amount of green chillies according to your taste.

  29. The service has always been very attentive whenever we've been there. As for value, entrees are about $10 but in my opinion well worth it, we've always left full and very satisfied. I've been craving their lunch buffet for awhile now so we plan on stopping in over the weekend! best restaurant in jodhpur
