This is my go to vegetable kurma..It is so tasty and pretty mild, since there is no spice powders in it. I like to add some white pepper powder in this. This is maha’s favourite i feed this for her with rice and she loves it. There is another version of white kurma which they serve in resturants, it has cashews, cream in them will share it soon.
