This vengaya kurma or onion kurma or green kurma is a very traditional, delicious and super easy to make kurma variety. This kurma goes very well with tiffin varieties like idli,dosa,appam, idiyappam and chapati.It hardly takes 20 mins to make this kurma. This is my family's heirloom recipe, we call this pacchai kurma referring to the green colour of the kurma. We make this kurma only with lots of onions which is sliced thinly lengthwise.
