Mixed Vegetable Kurma - Version 2

I love vegetable kurma with anything, this time i tried making kurma slightly different from my usual way of making this gravy, i went for an onion based spicy masala and yogurt -cashew grounded paste for making this gravy..This gravy doesnt go for a long cooking process and gets ready in less time, needless to say that this kurma goes prefect as a pair with rice, rotis or with toasted bread slices..U have many options to enjoy this fingerlicking kurma..This kurma is totally coconut free, it just goes for thick yogurt and few cashews to give the taste and thickness to this kurma, if u want to skip completely cashews just go for some more coriander powder or either make a paste with poppyseeds & coconut..The choice is urs, personnally i think we can make this cashew based kurma atleast once a while for a change...

Mixed Vegetable Kurma With Cashews

2cups Mixed Vegetables (potatoes, carrots, greenpeas etc)
1no Tomato (ripen & crushed)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
2nos Bayleaves
1tsp Fennel seeds
Coriander leaves (chopped)

To Grind:
2nos Onions (big & cubed)
2tbsp Coriander seeds
1tsp Cumin seeds
2nos Dry red chillies
1tsp Peppercorns
1tsp Ginger
6nos Garlic cloves
1no Cinnamon stick
2nos Cloves
2nos Cardamoms
1cup Yogurt
8-10nos Cashews

Grind cashews and yogurt as thick paste and keep aside..Heat few drop of oil, sauté the cubed onions, ginger, garlic cloves until they turns slightly brown, take off and dry roast the remaining ingredients given in the list 'to grind', now add this roasted spices to the already sauteed onions, grind as fine paste with enough water..

In the same vessel, heat enough oil, fry the bay leaves, fennel seeds until they turns brown, add immediately the crushed tomato,mixed veggies,turmeric powder and sauté everything for few minutes until the veggies get half cooked, add immediately the grounded onion paste with salt, cook everything until the oil get separates slightly..now add the yogurt-cashew paste with enough water, cook the gravy in medium flame until the veggies get well cooked..Garnish with coriander leaves and enjoy hot with rice or rotis..
