This wednesday brings us back to Blog Hopping and this week i am on Anusha’s blog Tomato Blues. She has become one of my gmail chat buddies and it is alwayz fun to have a chat with her. She has a lovely blog and love the name of the blog. I also love the way she takes close up pics of her recipes, You will get to learn something new from each and every blog.
Mixed Vegetable Kurma is the recipe i planned on making after reading most of her post, Have to try her marshmallows Cheese Cake, but after eating so many sweets for Diwali had to postpone that. I have prepared Kurma earlier as well but mine was always a bit off white in color but loved the green color of this and it tasted awesome as well.(Much better than my version). I have followed her recipe to the max with a couple of changes.
Mixed vegetable Kurma
Mixed Veggies ( I used Potato, beans, Carrot and Peas) 2 cups
Oil 1 tbsp
Jeera 1 tsp
Cinnamon 1/2 “
Onion 1 Medium finely chopped
Haldi 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
1 1/2 cup water
Make A Paste
Coriander leaves 1 Bunch (Cleaned and Washed)
Coconut 3 tbsp
Sesame Seeds 1 tbsp
G.chillies 4 (+ or – acc to ur taste)
Grind all the ingredients mentioned under “make a paste header” add little to make a fine paste.
Heat oil in a cooker, add jeera,cloves and chopped onion.
Saute till the onions are translucent andd all the chopped veggies.
Saute the veggies for 2 mins, add the paste, salt, and haldi and give a nice mix.
Add water and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
The veggies will be soft by this time.
Transfer to a bowl and serve it with Hot chappatis like i did or with hot poori’s as Anusha did(A Much Better combo 🙂 )
Veggies can be substituted according to your taste.
The original recipe calls for the addition of Poppy seeds(which was not there), saunf and split chickpeas(which i forgot)
Substituting cashews with coconut will also be a good option.
Do check the other Blog Hoppers for the cooking and love you radhika for the lovely event and keeping it going for so many weeks.
