Broccoli-Cauliflower Kurma

BM #71 Week 1 Day 3 

Here is yet another recipe with broccoli and has recently become our family favorite. I just added whatever vegetables I had in my refrigerator apart from broccoli. 

Ingredients - 

Broccoli Florets  3/4 cup
Cauliflower Florets 3/4 cup
Carrots Sliced 1/2 cup
Salt, Turmeric and Garam Masala as needed
Yogurt 1/2 cup
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Shajira 1/2 tsp, Asafotida 2 pinches)
For the Gravy -  
Oil 1 tsp
Onion 1 medium size
Tomato 1 medium
Almonds 6-7
Coriander seeds 1 tsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Ginger-Garlic-Green Chili Paste 2 tsp or as needed 
Cloves 3-4, Cinnamon 1 inch, Cardamom 1, Pepper 4-5 corns

Broccoli-Cauliflower Kurma

Method Of Preparation -

To Prepare the Gravy - 
In  heated pan, add oil and add almonds, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, pepper coriander seeds and cumin seeds. After they turn aromatic, add in the ginger-garlic-green chili paste. Saute for a few seconds.

Then add in the chopped onion and saute until translucent. toss in the chopped tomatoes. After the tomatoes turn mushy, remove from heat and blend them smoothly.

I took the easy way out - Put all the ingredients (except oil) listed under 'For the gravy' into a Vitamix blender and blend it using the 'Soup' Option. The gravy will be ready piping hot in about 6-7 minutes.
For the Kurma - 
Parboil the broccoli, cauliflower and carrots and set aside.

In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning. Pour in the gravy and let it simmer for a few minutes until the oil oozes out.

Add in salt and turmeric and also the parboiled vegetables.

Let the vegetables simmer in the flavorful gravy for about 5 minutes. Add in the yogurt, mix well and adjust flavors if needed.
