Vegetable Kurma with Idiyappam

I had some leftover beetroot slices remaining from the salad and was wondering what to prepare with it.It wasn't enough for a stir fry nor I had the mind to throw it away.While I was thinking of a side dish for Idiyappam,thought why not make a kurma out of it!I have never made kurma before,though I do prepare curries with mixed vegetables.Searched the fridge and got some leftover carrots(!!)too and sliced up one potato and there I have the ingredients for a kurma!Usually I make batata vaag or stew with idiyappam so was quite apprehensive when I served to hubby.He was surprised to see a new combination and loved it!!

It tasted great and was onion-garlic less and oil-free too,perfect on a fasting day.I called up amma and told her about this,she was very happy to note down one more curry without onion and garlic which she can prepare at home.It tastes great with chapathi too.

Vegetable Kurma


Chopped vegetables-I used half of a beetroot,half of a carrot and a small potato
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Green chillies - 2
Coriander leaves-a handful,chopped
Clove - 2
Whole peppercorns - 2-3


Cook the veggies in a pressure cooker till soft.
Make a masala of grated coconut,green chillies,coriander leaves,clove and peppercorns.
Add this to the cooked veggies,add enough salt and let it boil.
Lightly mash the veggies and simmer till the kurma becomes a little thick.
Serve hot with idiyappam or chapathi!!

I would like to send the combo of Idiyappam with Kurma to who is hosting this month's WBB and the theme is Combi breakfast!!

I would also like to send this to Sunita for this month's Think Spice-Think favorite!!The spice being Clove which imparts a great taste to this Kurma!
