Vegetable Korma is an excellent companion for Roti and Chapathi. This Veg Kurma is easy to make and tastes delicious.Vegetable Korma adds all nutrients and Vitamin for our daily diet so it is tasty as well as healthy.You can add any vegetables of your choice. This Veg Korma can be made in 2 different ways.The traditional south Indian method is to add coconut, however if you dont like the taste of coconut replace it with boiled and mashed up potatoes to thicken the gravy. This recipe is similar to the one which we get at the hotels - Hotel Style Veg Kurma especially Saravana Bhavan Style.
