This is a lightly spicy korma dish made with green chillies, mixed vegetables, cashews, and fried grams, which gives the korma its white colour. Typically, the predominant theme of south Indian gravies or curries is the use of coconut or coconut cream. Curry with both a spicy and creamy sauce base is frequently made using it. Usually, it comes with a choice of layered parotta, although rice is an option as well. White kurma is a creamy curry that is easy to make and is well-known for its flavour. Since coriander is not included in this recipe, the name of the dish is derived from that fact. Coriander is usually used to make south Indian vegetable kurma, giving this dish a distinctive flavour, colour, and texture. However, this recipe omits it, so the coconut masala gives it its white colour. whereas others always favour the kurma's fresh, green colour. but particularly in certain places in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, it is cooked just using coconut cream. Some people even cook it without green chillies at all, relying solely on dry spices like pepper and cloves to add heat. First off, there are virtually no restrictions on what may be included as veggies. Basic vegetables like potatoes, carrots, beans, peas, and onions are used in this recipe. Second, the coconut masala is made using shredded coconut. However, you may instead use coconut cream or freshly shredded coconut as an alternative. Finally, to add even more creaminess to the coconut masala, roasted gram and cashews are combined. However, you are not required to provide both and are free to omit either one.
