Collection of Kurma Recipes - South Indian Kurma Varieties

Today we are going to see the collection of kurma dishes here. Kurmas are an all time favourite side dishes for chapathi, poori, parotta and dosa. It's delicious and flavorful with a thick rich coconut based gravy. Coconut based gravies are popular in South Indian cuisine. A few added spices like cinnamon, cloves, fennel, cardamom etc and ginger garlic gives flavour to the kurma. I always prefer to cook kurma with  mild flavours in less oil. Though the variety in kurma is endless, here is a look at some of the kurma recipes on our blog.
