North Arcot Style Vegetable Kurma

Hi Supermoms,

It is always a pleasure to share an in - house  recipe with you all . In Olden  days, going to a restaurant is a luxury. Chapathi with a Vegetable Kurma, Bombay Chutney and Dal  is a delicacy that will be made during weekends. It tastes great even without onion, garlic and ginger. I remember the days I used to look forward to my grand mom and amma making Poori  or Chapathi and Vegetable Kurma. 

Today I am sharing this  homestyle Vegetable Kurma recipe. A quick and easy recipe that is a wonderful side dish for poori and chapathi.
