With a few basic ingredients in my pantry and some leftover idli / dosa batter in my refrigerator….and with humongous craving for flavourful simple dinner then immediately steaming piping hot idlis with tomato kurma is all I can think of !

Kurma has many versions.. but we always drool over the hotelish style veg kurmas, normally served with chapati, idiyappam or parotta. Whats makes it so different from homestyle preparation???
Very mild vegetarian kurma made with lots of vegetables and coconut milk. Tastes good with plain rice, pulav, idly, dosa, Poori and parotta. Hope u will like it.
Most sort white kurma often served as a side for chapatti, iddiappam or appam in chettinad restaurants. This can be either made with meat or mixed vegetables. Here's the mixed vegetable version. (Chettinad White Kurma / Korma)
Pakoda kurma is a lentil based sauce which is decadently creamy. Small deep fried lentil dumplings cooked in rich coconut milk gravy. This recipe might sound very unfamiliar to many, as its confined only to certain communities in Tamil Nadu. Quite hard to find online, as it sparingly shows up on searches. There are a couple of ways of making it, here's how we make it in our family. Quite a lengthly process, that's why I guess they make it only during special occassions. Ghee is a must as far as the original recipe goes, but its Ok to substitute with oil. (Padoka Kuzhambu / Pakora Korma / Pakora Kurma )
