Vegetable-Cashew Kurma




 Set Dosa, Chapati, Poori - all these go with this amazing Vegetable-Cashew Kurma (vegetable-cashew gravy). Although the addition of cashew is optional, it gives the gravy such a rich flavour and makes it fingerlicking good :)

My recent sojourn to Bangalore made me crave for Set Dosa + Kurma, and Sukh Sagar, Jayanagar did not disappoint.

Made this immediately after I came back from there and sending this to Priya's Bookmarked event(every Tuesday)  and Charitha's C for Colourful Curry

Preparation time: 20 mins. Cooking Time : 20 mins.
Serves: 3
