Mixed Vegetable Kurma ( Restaurant Style)

This Restaurant style mixed veg  kurma is simple yet delicious one, good to go with chapati , parotta or Poori. Ground cashew, poppy and coconut paste turns this dish into a  rich gravy along with the veggies. In Northern part of India they use yogurt and cashew to make a gravy. But in Southern part of India we use coconut, cashew and poppy seeds as main ingredients for the  gravy. Choose any style but for sure its going to be a delicious and rich Kurma made in just few minutes. I like to cook simple and healthy dishes for DH, kids and for myself during weekday. Once in a while unhealthy is ok too......hahahaha. Today as I was having  friends for lunch make this yummy and rich mixed veg kurma, along with Veg Dum Biryani
