Mushroom Kurma Recipe
Easy South Indian Style Mushroom Peas Kurma recipe with step by step pictures. Most of our dinner menu will be Phulka rotis and any vegetarian curry or Kurma or Sabzis. Sometimes for a quick side, I make Egg Bhurji or Paneer Bhurji With fresh Homemade Paneer. If I plan ahead then I will cook some Restaurant Style dishes like Aloo Gobi, Channa Masala, Gobi Mutter Masala. But there are some days when I feel lazy or sick, I wanted to make Simple Dinner with less or minimal preparations. This Mushroom Peas Kurma is one such easy side dish for rotis/Puris. I blend spice powders together with coconut and added to the boiled veggies. That's it.,Kurma ready to enjoy with rotis or dosa. This recipe is easy to cook with less preparation and here I used Mushroom and peas but you can make it with any desired vegetables or mixed vegetables too. Now off to the recipe..

  • Wash mushroom, clean and slice or cut into desired size/shape, chop onion, tomato and keep ready.
  • In a blender, add all the ingredients under the heading "To Wet Grind" and using 2-3 tbsp of water grind it to a smooth paste and keep aside.
  • Then heat oil in a kadai, when oil is hot add the tempering ingredients one by one and fry well. 
  • And then add sliced onion, curry leaves and saute for 1-2 minutes. 
  • Then add tomato and saute until it turns soft and mushy, then add mushroom and turmeric powder and saute for a minute.
  • After that add the ground coconut masala paste and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. 
  • And add enough salt, water to the desired consistency, fresh or frozen peas and cook in medium heat until raw smell leaves.
  • Finally add some chopped cilantro and simmer for a minute and turn off the stove. 
  • That's it..Flavorful Mushroom Kurma ready. Serve hot with Phulka Rotis.
The same way, you make mixed vegetable kurma using carrot, peas, beans or Aloo kurma with potato/aloo or cauliflower kurma.
You can skip curry masala powder or replace it with 1/4 tsp garam masala powder.
Do not use more garlic and ginger than the mentioned amount, then it will spoil the kurma.
You can also use Kuzhambu Milagai Thool instead of dry red chili powder.
