How To Make Carrot Peas Kurma?
CARROT PEAS KURMA- A FLAVORFUL CURRY WITH CARROT AND PEAS. VEGAN. GF
Carrot Peas Kurma happens on days when dinner is a challenge.While making breakfast and lunch is a breeze for me, the very thought of dinner sends me running into hiding like a cockroach who is quick to get out of the mistress s sight. Despite knowing around 20 accompaniment ideas, i still flounder when it comes to making something to go with those crispy dosas or those fluffed up pooris. Chapathis, however are the easiest.My job becomes a tad easier when there is coconut lying around in the fridge. Those times however are rarer in my pantry and i am always fretting and frowning, come dinner time. During the times that coconut is there. i am smiling wide because the prospects of making a creamy Kurma or a nutty chutney is brighter. This kurma came about on one of those lucky days when there was coconut aplenty in my pantry and peas were overflowing in my freezer.A handy recipe that can beat the “What s for dinner?” stress. Go ahead and give it a shot.
