Home Style Kuruma

This is a recipe that is very close to my heart. It is one of the first dishes that was taught to me by my mother in law way back in 1987. She used only fresh spices and not readymade garmmasala. A very rich and sumptuous Kuruma that can practically go along with any Indian bread. I paired this curry with delicious Koki’s! Recipe for Koki to follow in my next post.
