  • Blender


  • 2 cups Broccoli Chopped
  • 2 Potatoes Peeled and chopped
  • 1 large Onion Sliced
  • 2 tbsp. Oil
  • to taste Salt


  • 1 tsp Jeera/Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp Saunf/fennel seeds
  • 3 Green chilies
  • ½ inch piece Ginger
  • 2 pods Garlic
  • 10 Cashew nuts
  • ¼ cups Coconut Grated
  • 4 Cloves
  • 2 Cardamom
  • 1 inch stick Cinnamon
  • ½ Onion


  • Grind all the ingredients listed under the masala ingredients into a smooth paste, adding little water as possible.
  • Separate the Broccoli florets and clean them well. Pat it dry and fry it in about a tbsp of oil. Fry it until the broccoli softens a bit, but is not cooked entirely. Keep aside.
  • Also peel the potatoes and par boil them until they are partially cooked. Don't overcook them. They will finish cooking in the kurma.
  • In the same pan, heat the remaining oil and fry the sliced onions till translucent.
  • Add the ground masala to the onions and fry till aromatic and the oil leaves the sides of the pan (about 12 – 15 mins). The more the masala fries the better the subzi tastes, so even if the masala is sticking to the bottom of the pan, sprinkle a little water and continue to fry.
  • Now add the par boiled potatoes along with the broccoli. Add about a cup of water and salt needed. Let the kurma come to a boil and let it simmer until the vegetables are cooked
  • Serve the Broccoli Potato Kurma hot with Rotis, parathas, or rice.


Expert tips
  • Frying the broccoli briefly before adding it to the kurma ensures that the broccoli does not become mushy.
  • Sauteeing the masala paste in low heat for a good amount of time makes the kurma even more flavorful. Make sure to keep stirring the masala so we don't burn it.
  • Using potato in the kurma is completely optional. If you want to skip the potatoes, you can absolutely skip it.
  • We could also use other vegetables in the kurma. Some examples would be adding carrot or cauliflower along with the broccoli.
