To make Kurma-
Grind fresh coconut along with ginger, garlic, fennel seeds, red chilli powder, turmeric powder into smooth and fine paste. Heat few tbsps of oil in a pan, when oil is hot add the tempering spices and fry until the aroma releases. Add the ground paste to whole spices and fry on medium heat until the oil separates on the sides of pan. Add required water to the ground paste( let the gravy be little thin as the pakodas tends to absorb the gravy.) Season the gravy with salt, add the coriander leaves and curry leaves. Allow the gravy to boil for few minutes. Once the kurma is done, turn of the heat and add the prepared pakodas to the kurma. Allow the pakodas to be soaked in kurma for atleast 15 mins.
