mix veg kurma recipe, vegetable korma recipe

korma or kurma is a curry dish which is popular in india as well as in central asia. the base of the  curry can be coconut paste or coconut milk, yogurt, cream, onion or tomato paste or nuts-seeds paste or a combination.

in the north indian and mughlai cuisine generally yogurt (curd) and cream are added. whereas in the south indian versions, coconut is used along with some nuts-seeds. there are many many variations of making a korma. the taste and the flavor varies with the cooking technique and the ingredients that are used in the korma.

this recipe of korma is not a sweet version. it is mildly spiced and has a nice red color coming from the dry kashmiri red chilies. i have added both coconut and yogurt in this south indian korma variation. the whole recipe has been made in a pressure cooker. if you have time than you can also cook the korma in a pan.

the vegetables can be of your choice (cauliflower, carrots, corn, baby corn, peas, beans, potatoes). you can also add paneer (cottage cheese) or tofu to the korma. to make a vegan version of this veg korma recipe, substitute yogurt with a vegan yogurt.

i have tried and tested a lot of korma recipes before and most of them i felt lacked flavor, depth and taste. now after making so many kormas, i have become a kind of an expert in preparing korma curries. this recipe of vegetable korma was so good that i had to blog it along with the peas and potato korma.

many times it happens that i take step by step pics and the recipe never makes an appearance on the blog. if the recipe does not come to our standards of taste testing, i do not add them. all the pics get deleted. i keep on trying the same recipe with different ingredients and their proportions. the whole process from the selection of ingredients to taking pictures to the preparation starts all over again and lastly the taste testing. in pursuit of such a perfection, i have deleted countless cakes, breads, cookies and a few curry recipes.

this vegetable korma is best served with chapatis, kerala parotta, parathas and pooris. the next good option is to serve vegetable korma with steamed rice, jeera rice or kashmiri pulao. you can also have the curry with bread or dinner rolls.
