This adorable, richly green colored mixed vegetable kurma was my one time food solution for poori cravings during my initial cooking days. Those were the days when I was taking baby steps in cooking, kitchen and stuff like that. This mixed vegetable kurma is so simple and straight forward that every time I made, it was successful. So during those days it was one of my fool-proof recipe with no mess, disaster around it.
I would consider this as minimalist approach to side dish, because in very basic terms you put all chopped veggies in a pan and cook with pureed spices till perfection. No extra steps. No sauteing, seasoning jobs here. And you are done. You have got a pan full of nutritious deliciousness with tons of flavors that makes a rainbow meal which you want to keep eating again and again.
Mixed vegetable kurma accompanied deep fried poori on dinner table and the kids enjoyed thoroughly because I never make poori for dinner. My love towards green vegetables like beans and peas drive me crazy sometimes because I try to use them in every curry I make. But for this kurma they are very apt. You can choose the veggies like turnip and cauliflower too but avoid using lady’s finger. Also when you add other vegetables, ensure their cooking time matches otherwise you are left with some overcooked or under-cooked ones ruining the actual taste.
