Nilgiri Korma/Kurma

This kurma dish is said to have originated from the area around the Nilgiris mountain range in Tamil Nadu known for growing fresh herbs and spices. It  tastes really fresh and different.

Ingredients:  2 cups Mixed vegetables, 1 Onion, Ginger Garlic paste 2 tsp, 2 small Cinnamon sticks, 2 Cardamom pods, 1 tsp Poppy seeds, 1/4 tsp cumin seeds, 1/4 tsp fennel seeds, 1/2 cup fresh grated coconut,  3-4 green chillies, 3 tbsp mint leaves, 3 tbsp cilantro leaves, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp Coriander powder, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder, 5-6 Curry leaves, 2 tbsp oil.

Method: Cook the mixed vegetables in microwave/stove top till almost done. Chop and fry the onion, cinnamon stick, poppy seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds and grind it along with grated coconut, green chillies, mint and cilantro leaves. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, curry leaves, turmeric powder, cinnamon stick, cardamom and ginger garlic paste. Saute for 2 mins. Add the ground masala and coriander powder and cook for 2-3 mins. Add chopped vegetables, and salt to taste. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and garnish with cilantro. Enjoy with rice/roti.
