Fig Corn Kurma

Recipe : Fig corn kuruma
Shared by : Saranya Simhan
Dated : 08/02/2015

We would have eaten dried fig fruit which contains high iron content in it. Fig vegetable.. atthi kai is also available in some markets which is equally good as fruit.. its very good for uterus.. have heard people say orthodox brahmins do not include this in their food.. just like onions .. so can have during non vrath days for its health benefits..  Cleaning this is bit time consuming.  First wash the fig.. then cut into halves or crush with the help of stone or back of chapathi roller.. tiny flies will be seen.. rinse it in running water.. and soak the pieces in salted warm water fr a while and drain them all.
Fig one cup
Onion chopped 2
Baby corn 1 cup chopped
Vegetables as per our choice- capsicum potato cauli flower -2 cups
Ground nut-one fist full
Turmeric powder a pinch
Salt to taste 
1 spoon moong dhal.. this will give thickness to the gravy.. to make it a honegenous mixture.
To grind
Onion 1
Tomato 2
Corainder seeds-1 spn
Elachi 2
Cloves 3
Cinnnamon 1 small stick
Ginger garlic paste 2 spn
Jeera and fennel 1 spn each
grated coconut 2 spns
Coriander leaves 1 small bunch
Pepper kernels 1 spn
And I usally add the seed portion of capsicum when grinding.

Grind the mixture and keep aside. In a pan heat oil and add onions and fry fr a minute. Then add capsicum corn potato cauliflower and groundnut and stir fr 2 more minutes. Then add req salt turmeric powder and moong dhal. Again fry fr a minute. Then add the ground paste and water as req just to immerse all the veetables. Pressure cook for 3-4 whistles. Garam garam fig kuruma is ready to serve with indian wheat breads poori or jeera rice !!
