Vegetable Nilgiri Kurma recipe – Side dish for chapatis or rice

     My hubby gets Indian food in his office canteen nowadays. It was a welcome change for the Indians in his office after having the available vegetarian options of stir fried rice or noodles or some partially cooked vegetables. So on the first few days, he used to send me the pictures of his food plate or the lunch menu etc. One day, he said that they served vegetable nilgiri kurma and it was quite good.The name was quite new to me. So I searched the net and got a few recipes of this kurma.

I made for my chapatis one night for dinner. So do try this one for a change from your usual side dishes. You will love it.
