vegetable kurma

Mixed Vegetable kurma is the most popular side dish for chapatis and parotas in south India.Brinji(soth Indian version of pulao) and kurma was very popular one.Even before we were exposed so much north indian food at home and restaurants kurma was a staple one.Even now in a lot of resaurants it is served with rotis,pooris and parotas.

Now a days we have it with idiappam and appams.Mine is a mild one.We have it with Idiappam mostly and sometimes we do have it with pooris and chapatis.My mother used to make a diluted version is this and we used to have it with rice.Especially when my dad was not in town she used to make a single dish and we used enjoy it with rice and ghee.
