Carrot and green peas kurma(Carrot and green peas in Coconut milk)

Carrot and green peas kurma


A mild gravy which is best for poori, aapam and jeera rice. In this kurma, I have added moong dal and coconut milk to add thickness and extra colour to this quick and simple recipe. This dish is sure to win your family's hearts with its creamy texture and mildly flavoured. You can prepare this kurma within 15 minutes with the store bought coconut milk, but I usually prepare my own coconut milk. You can change the vegetables, whatever you have on hand, but I think sweeter vegetables like (carrots, green peas, sweet corn and chayote) works especially well. For this kurma coconut oil tastes good with the mild flavours. I haven't added any dry spices, but if you want to add, you can include while sauteing the onions.
