White kurma(Vellai kurma in Tamil), a popular South Indian side dish made with mixed boiled vegetables and special ground masala and served with soft chapatis. Learn how to make the restaurant style white kurma in minutes.

Moreover, this white veg kurma is so aromatic because of the whole spices ground with coconut masala. Also, I would suggest not to alter the spices and measurements to get the authentic taste.

Furthermore, there are no spice powders like turmeric powder or chilli powder or coriander powder or garam masala powder added in this Vellai kurma (white kurma). Here, green chillies do the honors of spice part and there is no need for chilli powder.

I have posted the No onion no garlic White vegetable kurma, which is entirely different in taste. You may like to check it out for without onion garlic version.

Moreover, this white veg kurma is very mild in taste and best suited for chapati. My kids just love this Vellai kurma with chapati, phulkas and Poori. I always see happy satisfied smiles on their lovely faces whenever I pack this for lunch. Finally, do not use tomato for this recipe as tomato alters the taste of the kurma.

Recipe Notes

Tips: 1) The creamy texture of this white veg kurma comes from the cashews. Hence do not skip adding cashews to the masala to get the authentic taste of restaurants'. 2) Furthermore, use only kurma vegs like carrots, beans, peas and cauliflower. Because other country stew vegs like broad beans, gourd vegs, and brinjal may not be suitable for this kurma. 3) Finally, cook the vegetables completely and crunchy vegetables don't taste good in this kurma.

Preparation:

  • Clean and chop all the vegetables and onion.
  • Rinse cauliflower florets and blanch(dip in hot water) for few minutes to remove microorganisms and pesticides.
  • Boil all the vegetables together in a pressure cooker for 3 whistles. If cooking in a pan, cook until the veggies become soft.
