Chettinad vellai kurma is one of the favourite side dishes I usually make for chappathi, wheat parotta or phulkas. It’s a hotel style mixed vegetable kurma that you may have had in saravana bhavan hotels.If you have not tasted one then this is the exact method I used to do for years and definitely you will be loving it once when you taste it. Except adding green chillies there is no other heat taste in this kurma. Adding cashews and coconut are the main top ingredients that should not be missed while making

this chettinad vellai kurma. In addition to cashews some add roasted gram dal. You can add gram dal if you want your kurma to be more thicker and to increase the quantity. I have limited my chillies to keep it little bland for my family sake you can alter it by adding more chillies. Even adding khus-khus and saunf is very much needed for this kurma. If you don’t have any of the listed vegetables you can skip adding it. You can make this gravy thick or thin as you may like both the ways it will be good.
