Saravana Bhavan Kuruma | White koorma |Restaurant Style Kuruma

I like saravana bhavan kuruma very much esp the white one :) it is rich and creamy and tasty and spicy what not?Every time when i visit saravana bhavan i order idiyappam (one of my fav) esp for the white color kuruma.Last time i tried the kuruma it came out well but its not equal to the one that saravana bhavan gives ! after that i tried many time but i am missing some thing though its rich its not thick :) finally i found the recipe on my own and it closes to that infact its better than I would say  :PDo not be scared by seeing the list its all available near our shop itself ! must try recipe ! U know once u tasted u keep preparing the same !

Pre- preparation :

Boil the veggies by adding the required amt of salt
Grind the paste 1 and paste 2


Heat the kadai and add the ghee and oil once heat , add the bay leaf by crushing it , then add all the masala items – use ur mortal before u add the masala items in the kadai – just a crush makes the aroma!

saute for a minute then add the onion , saute till it changes it colors , then add the paste 1 saute till the raw smell goes. then add the boiled veggies and mix well and adjust salt . saute for 3 minutes.

Now add the paste 2 and required amt of water and mix well allow it to boil for some 10 minutes in the low medium flame ! garnish with coriander ! serve hot !

  • While adding the fried gram make sure u are adding the right measurment this one thicken the gravy much so be care on that part
  • Also u can soak the cashew, poppy seeds and fennel seeds for 20 minutes before u grind ! this makes the paste more smoother.
  • Do add all the masala items the flavour says it all
  • Do crush it so that it cook well otherwise u feel the raw smell .
  • Do not add tomato and beet root as it spoils the kuruma color
  • adjust the green chilly according to your family taste.
  • Do not add any other spicy powder as it spoils the kuruma color.
  • Do not saute the onion much as it tend to change the entire color of the kuruma !
