Vegetable Kurma- Version 2

A few days back, I had posted a mixed vegetable recipe and had mentioned that I try to make it slightly different each time. So todays post is a second version of how I make it.

This one has a lovely flavour because of the freshly ground spice. Kurma is a south Indian speciality with coconut milk and spices. Its basically served with parota in the South. But it goes very well with cumin/jeera rice and chapatis/pooris too. My mom used to serve with toasted bread which was a good alternative too and made a yummy breakfast. She used to make it slightly differently by adding freshly grated coconut and whole spices. That had a lovely and a different kind, infact more of a south flavour to it. So here is how I make it.
