Nice aroma and flavour.
I tried the version given by Padma as I didn t have coconut milk, I added 1 2 a glass of warm water to the dish so not too dry. It came out good but I could have done without the water and I guess it would have been a good dish too. Thanks for the tip on the non coconut milk version Padma.
Good recipe ! It has come out very well , My husband had more chappatthis than usual
Just visited this site yday and tried out this recipe last night.. Must say it turned out great.. The proportions given in the recipe are perfect and everyone appreciated how good it tasted.. Hope to get more such recipes from you..
Very Good recipe. The measurements suggested were perfect. I tried this looked at the many star ratings. And it was a worthwhile try. Thank you for the recipe. Please keep posting such great mouthwatering ones.
fantastic curry. I make this curry every other day for chappathy and all at home loves it..thank you so much!what a great recipe....cant stop admiring..
luved it....it tastes really good....you can add a few drops of cocunut oil at the end ,just when the gravy starts boiling, it gives it a nice taste and smell
Nice recepie and very easy to make.
out of all kurma preparations i have tasted all over india, i rate kerala style kurma preparation as the best.
yummy..yummy..yummy..thanks for d recipe..it came out well..
A good traditional recipe..!!I would prefer seasoning with bay leaves and then saute the onion+ginger garlic,green chillies, then tomato.Instead of adding garam masala at the end,we can include the paste ground of poppy seeds+cardomom+cloves+cinnamon+coriander+few dried red chillies(if reqd.)while u saute the onion at the very beginning.U can dry fry these ingredients for a better aroma.If u are not adding coconut milk,then ad some fresh scrapped coconut to these and then grind them to a smooth paste.I prefer adding coconut while grinding rather coconut milk.saute this paste along with onions etc., and then add the vegetables..Add salt to taste and bring it to boil until it gives u a good aroma and decent consistency.Garnish with finely chopped cilantro leaves if u want.
This recipe is very good. Simple and very tasty...
Good recipe Sonia, so sad no one has rated this recipe, this is the closest i have seen to a good homely nadan korma recipe eventhough there is room for personal touches.
Rich & Spicy mushroom curry with thick, creamy cashew blended gravy. Very nutritious the dish goes well with rotis and naan.
