Meal Maker&Vegetable Kuruma/Soya Chunks Veggie korma

I saw the recipe in "Aval vikatan" magazine sometime back, modified here and there to suit our taste buds.
Ingredients
Soya chunks-1/4cup 
Mixed vegetables-1/2cup [I have used carrots,beans and potato]
Curd-1/4cup
Onion-1
Tomato-1
Green chilly-1
Turmeric powder-1/4teaspoon
Cilantro to garnish 
Salt
Oil 
For masala powder
Coriander seeds-2teaspoons
Cumin seeds-1teaspoon
Red chilly-3
Fennel seeds-1/2teaspoon
Cinnamon stick
Cloves-2
Whole pepper corns-5
Elaichi-1
Small piece of ginger 

Method
Dry roast the items till you get a nice aroma, let it cool and grind it into coarse powder.

Bring a cup of water to rolling boil, add the choya chunks, cook for couple of minutes and put off the flame. Let it sit for 5 more minutes, then wash the soya chunks with cold water, squeeze out the water nicely.
Combine the soya chunks, vegetables, curd, masala powder and salt in a bowl. Mix well and let it soak for at least 30 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan, make the tempering with mustard seeds. Then add the chopped onion, green chilly and fry till the onions become transparent.

Add the tomatoes and cook until they become soft. Then add the marinated veggies and soya, cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add water according to your desired consistency of the kurma and let it boil nicely. I added about 11/4 cups of water.
After 5-6 minutes, reduce the heat to low, cook until the oil separates from the korma, garnish with cilantro and serve as a side dish for roti/idli & dosa.
Note
You can use only soya chunks to make this kurma. As I had very little soya in hand, I added veggies.
You can avoid the tomato if the curd is sour.
