Grind together all the ingredients for grinding in a mixer to a fine paste.
In a kadai, heat oil. Add cumin seeds and wait for it to splutter. Next, add the cinnamon and cloves.
Now, add the onions and saute till pink.
Now, add the veggies one by one . Start with the cauliflowers and end with the peas.
After this, add the ground paste and salt and combine well.
Add water to the mixture, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 7 to 9 mins.
Serve hot with pooris or even rotis. My husband likes it even with rice.
Note: The kuruma thickens if refrigerated. So add a little water and bring to a boil before serving if refrigerated.
