There are numerous recipes for kurma but this is the recipe I most often make and add vegetables or meat according to my preference. I end up making it with Potato and Peas which is what I always have at home when my refrigerator is empty. Its easy to make and comes in handy when I have guests at home. Goes well with Rotis,Parathas or Rice.
