Tomato Kurma Recipe | Thakkali Kurma Recipe | Tomato Korma Recipe


Thakkali Kurma / Tomato Curry, a tomato and coconut-based curry which can be prepared in a flash if there are no vegetables available in your kitchen. Kurma in India has many meanings. But it is mostly a medley of veggies or meat cooked in a sauce that has either dairy or nuts or coconut.  In South India, Kurma is almost always synonymous with coconut. Most south Indian Kurma recipes call for adding fresh coconut. This tangy tomato kuruma is a delightful concoction of ripe tomatoes and a fresh coconut and spice paste. Tomato Kurma will be less spicy and looks creamy since we have added coconut. The whole preparation is very simple and it works out well, It can be served with idli/dosa/roti. I would like to share few tips and recommendations. firstly, I have added roughly chopped tomatoes to pan and not sauteed with coconut paste to allow to pressure cook them, it will give the nice aroma and taste. secondly, use fully ripened tomatoes. Finally, cashews nuts can be easily overlooked if you do not prefer.
