Sprouts & Mixed Veg Kurma | முளைகட்டிய​ பயிர் குருமா

This simple & delicious Kurma is a combo of Sprouts and Mixed Veggies. This goes well with Idiyappam, dosa, idli and Chapathi varieties. Sprouts for the longest time have been considered a healthy food. They are the best source of balanced food which can be eaten raw in salads or cooked. I made sprouts with chickpeas this time.

Ingredients :-
------------------
  

Sprouts ¼ cup
Mixed Veggies 1 cup
Onion (Finely Chopped) 1
Tomato (Finely Chopped) 1
Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Bay leaf 1
Curry leaves few
Oil 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

To Grind :-
Poppy Seeds 1 tsp
Fennel Seeds 1 tsp
Grated Coconut ¼ Cup
Split roasted gram2 tsp
Cashews 5
Cloves 2
Cinnamon ½ inch piece
Cardamom 1
Salt to taste

Method :-

---------------
1). Parboil the veggies and sprouts  with water on stove-top or Microwave it for 3-5 minutes. Make sure not to overcook/ mash the veggies.
2). Grind all the ingredients from the list 'to grind' with little water to a smooth paste and keep aside. 
3). Heat oil in a pan, add bay leaves, curry leaves and fry till aromatic. Then add ginger-garlic paste and fry till the raw smell goes. Add onions and saute till it turns translucent. Then add tomatoes and saute till turns mushy.
4). Add red chilli powder, coriander powder and blend it well. Then add the grounded paste with 1 cup water* and cook closed in sim for few minutes until raw smell leaves.
5). Add the veggies and combine well. Check for salt and spices, simmer for few minutes. Switch off when it reaches thick consistency.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot !! 

 Notes :-
-----------
# I used cauliflower, carrot, peas and chickpeas sprouts. You can use veggies of your choice.  
# At step 4, you can add more water* if required. Kurma thickens later, so switch it off accordingly.  
# Do not pressure cook / over cook veggies, it will turn mushy. 
# Do not over cook or boil the Kurma for long time as the coconut in the gravy will start to release its oil and there will be difference in taste.
