Veg korma is one of the best takeaways. After all, butter chicken and saag chana, Indian vegetable korma stands out in takeaway curry recipes. You will find it the most in packaged foods after chana masala and palak paneer. Just like Kerala does too in tourist destination. Most people visit it for its wonderful cuisine and calming backwaters. You will find honeymooners, yogis and even people visiting it for some peace. It is a wonder for tourists. Be it local domestic or international travelers. Hence, you can find all kinds of variety in food. It has always been known as spice heaven and coffee gardens.
Food is delicious in Kerala. Be it meat, fish, vegetarian or vegan. Yoga, Ayurveda give back a lot to community. Thus, you can enjoy varied cuisine in Kerala. The alluring backwaters can calm like no other. However, the real steal is the food.
What does Korma taste like?
Veg Kurma recipe is very mild in spices. Hence, you will find it slightly sweet. You can enjoy this with fried poori. It also works great with Malabar parota or the Kerala parotta. It is a great change from all the spicy food. Some light vegetable curry like avial ,thoran and rice is all you need for a yummy menu. Most non-veg curries are extremely spicy in South Indian cuisine. However, this is a great stew. It is perfect for a sick tummy. End your meal with a delicious creamy payasam or a coconut burfi and sleep well. While seviyan kheer is dairy based, coconut burfi can be made vegan.
