Vegetable kurma


When Srivalli posted about BM#65 in the month of May, I was super excited. It was summer vacation and my father, sister and nephew were coming and a lot of cooking will be happening. My nephew, especially, is very fond of chapati and paranthas and will be cooking different types of curries(side dish) to go with it. So I thought I will be having many recipes to upload on my page and the BM. But to tell you the truth, it was not  that easy. Though I had prepared  many dishes, clicking photos was a problem for me. Many times I forgot to click pictures or in a hurry to serve food,  the pictures did not turn out good (lighting) etc. Thankfully, I managed to at least write my posts on time. This kurma is my nephew's favourite one. I was more than happy to make this as one can add as many vegetables as possible. Moreover, my li'l one also enjoyed eating in competition with my nephew.  Now for the recipe.

INGREDIENTS:
  • Mixed vegetables like potato, carrot, peas, cauliflower (peeled & cubed)- 1 to 1-1/2cup
