Vegetable korma - Simple vegetable korma - Mixed vegetable kurma

Vegetable kurma is a best accomplishment for chapthi,roti,parotta,idiyappam and poori's. It also goes well with dosa and appam. I have used 4 types of veggies such as carrots,beans,gobhi and peas.We have used 4 different colours of veggies. Using different color  vegetables contains unique health components that are essential to our health. Eating plenty of healthy vegetables  helps prevent heart disease and strokes, diverticulitis, control your blood pressure, prevent some types of cancers, and guards against cataract and macular degeneration or vision loss.Now we prepare colourful and nutritious korma.
