    Hello Madam,
    I tried this out y’day evening with the exception of poppy seeds with extra cashews and it tured out amazing. Everyone at home were drooling over it and everyone wanted the left over kurma in the morning. Thanks much for the wonderful recipe with perfect measurements.

    Hi mam,i tried this yesterday with chapati it came out very well mam thank you so much……. not only this i tried many of your recipes it was yummy…. this is one of my favorite site……thank you so much mam……

      Sumi, poppy seeds are available at all Indian grocery stores and they are sold as Khu-khus. It gives good creamy texture and shiny look for the kurma, if you can’t find then add couple of extra cashews. Thanks.

    Thanks Mullai for the recipe. I had always wanted to make kurma in the taste that comes in the hotel. Was very glad when I found the recipe in this website & it came out very very yummy. Your recipes are so dependable as usual.

    Wow Mullai, you recipies are simply great.

    Today tried out your hotel kurma, and it turned out great. Many years before, I did tried this from Ananda Vikatan Diwali menu speical, called as white kurma, but that had many process before final product.

    Thanks again!!!

    Awesome, exquisite and splendid recipe. We live in Pittsburgh and going to HSB is out of question for now at least. Right from the first morsel, it did two things. (1) Re-kindled the yearning of South Indian food / HSB and (2) we actually think this kurma replaced / we forgot the real taste of HSB kurma.

    Heartfelt thanks,

    Hi Mullai, I have tried this recipe at least 3-4 times and it was always a hit. It tastes very close to the white kurma we get in Saravana Bhavan. The only problem I have is , I never get that pure white colour. Can you guide me on that pls? I have used exactly the same recipe as mentioned above. Any guess on where I might have gone wrong ? Thanks Mullai.

    Ma’am, done with hotel kurma…You beated the taste of Saravana Bhavan kurma…Your receipe is Fabulous. Excellent combination for Chappathi.

    Also expecting more like restaurant style Sambar, Kuttu especially Saravana Bhavan Sambar, heard from that chef they are preparing the special Sambar Podi and the proportion was always same.

    Thanx a lot for your receipe ma’am.

    Have a great day

    I tried your hotel kurma with mint laccha parotta yesterday for dinner. We had an appetizing and delectable meal. Super hit, will do this kurma often. So for members I would suggest to blindly follow the recipe to get the real authentic taste that I was able to relish.
    Thanks so much for sharing this fabulous recipe!
