Vegetable Korma

Vegetable Korma
Vegetable korma is traditionally made in party or weddings over here.It is cooked in a Rich Cashew Sauce for a long time.But I had made it so simple and easy.I substituted Cashews with Poppy Seeds,it gives you the same silkyness that you get from Cashewnut with out worrying about the calories.Please don’t forget to add Raisans,because it gives you the sweetness which was perfect.I served it with Flaky Paratha(check out the recipe here )So please try it out and let me know what you think.


Carrot-1 chopped
Cauliflower-a cup of florets
Potato-2 chopped
Raisans-2 tblspn
Redchilli powder-1 tblspn
Turmeric powder- ½ tsp
Garam Masala powder-1 tblspn
Green chilli-2
Oil-2 tblspn
Curd- ½ cup
Sugar-1 tblspn
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for Garnishing

To make Masala:

Onion-1 sliced
Tomato-3 chopped
Coconut- ½ cup
Poppy seeds (Kasa kasa)-2 tblspn
Cinnamon-2 small piece
Saunf (Sombu or perum cheeragam)-1 tblspn
Ginger Garlic paste-1 tblspn


Microwave the vegetables with some salt for about 5 min and set aside.

In a kadai add 1 tblspn of oil and crackle some cinnamon and saunf.Throw in onions and cook till it is golden brown,add in the Ginger garlic paste and Tomatoes and cook for 3 min,Now add in the coconut and Poppy seeds and give it a mix until every thing is combined.Remove that mix and grind it into a paste after it cools down.The lovely Masala is ready.

In the same kadai add the rest of the oil and add in the spice powder with some water and cook till the oil separates.

Add in the vegetables and mix well till each veggies is coated with that spices.Add in the green chilli with some water and cook it till the vegetables are done.

Pour in the Prepared masala and simmer till oil separates from the mixture.Add in the curd and Raisans and mix well.Cover it and let it simmer for 10 min on a very very low flame.

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with Parata or Chappati.
