Vegetable Kurma

I wouldn't mind having dry curries/ sabzi with chapattis. But Jacob is a gravy man. So in the initial days of married life, I accidentally tried this curry and it was a hit. So my list of gravy curry got longer by one more and I named it vegetable kurma :).

This is super easy to make while you are hurrying to make breakfast on a working day, at the same time preparing food to pack up for lunch too.

Try making it and I am sure you too would like it.


  1. 1 cup of red onion, finely sliced
  2. 2 green chillies, slit
  3. 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder
  4. 1 1/2 cup of carrots, cut into long thin pieces
  5. 1 1/2 cups of green beans, cut into long pieces and split into halves
  6. 1 1/2 cups of potatoes, cut into long thin pieces
  7. 1 strand of curry leaves
  8. 1 tsp of garam masala
  9. 3-4 tbsp of yogurt
  10. 1 tbsp of chopped coriander leaves
  11. 1 cup of water
  12. 3 tbsp of cooking oil
  13. Salt to taste
  • In a pressure cooker, pour in the oil. Once hot, add the sliced onions, green chilly, curry leaves and salt. Saute it till the onions turn tender. Add the turmeric powder to it and give it a mix.
  • Now add the potatoes, carrots and beans. Give it a mix. Let it cook for a minute. Pour in the water and let it come to a boil. 
  • Close the pressure cooker and cook it on high heat for 2 whistles. Remove it from the heat and let the pressure release.
  • Open the pressure cooker, adjust the salt and water as required for the gravy. Add the garam masala and bring it to a boil. Remove it from the heat and let it cool down a bit.
  • Now slowly add in the yogurt to it and give it a mix.
  • Garnish it with coriander leaves and serve it with chapattis.
  1. Do not add yogurt to the curry when it is too hot, else the yogurt would curdle. 
  2. This curry isn't spicy and so you could add in more green chillies if you wish to make it a bit more spicy.
  3. Do not overcook the vegetables else they would turn mushy. The curry would look and taste good only if the vegetables remain in the form that you could bit into them.
