      Priya, this recipe should be good for 3-4 adults. I’ll update as I type this to you. Most of my old recipes don’t have yield and will update when I get a chance. Thanks.

    Hi mullai,

    I tried this yesterday for ghee rice. It came out really good. Only one thing. I feel turmeric powder need not be used. Then the colour will reflect the true name “vellai kurma”

      Raji, thanks for your suggestion. Actually turmeric is optional but I usually add for most of my recipes bcos of its medicinal properties. You can avoid or use more coconut milk for white colour kurma. Thanks again for your suggestions.
