Navratan Korma

Navratan Korma


"This is an Indian vegetable korma with nuts, paneer cheese, and an adjustable list of vegetables. It is in a tomato-cream sauce as opposed to the usual yogurt based sauce. 'Navratan' means 'nine gems,' so choose nine of the vegetable, nuts, and paneer ingredients; you can leave out the elements you don't want to use, or add them all so it is 'ten gems' if you wish."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place mixed nuts in the skillet, cook and stir until golden brown, and set aside. Stir onion into the skillet, and cook until tender. Mix in garlic paste and ginger paste, and cook 1 minute. Stir in tomato sauce, cayenne pepper, turmeric, coriander, and garam masala. Pour in water, and mix in raisins, carrots, green bell pepper, beans, peas, and potatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
  2. Heat remaining oil in a separate skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the paneer on both sides, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Place in a bowl with enough hot water to cover for about 2 minutes to soften, then stir into the skillet with the vegetables.
  3. Stir milk and cream into the skillet with the vegetables and paneer. Bring to a boil, and continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt to taste.

Made this for my first dinner party ever - added coconut milk to the cream and milk, and also added pineapple at the end. I omitted the paneer since I made it with the Absolutely Amazing Palak ...

Absolutely divine, and quite easy too! I wasn't able to find any paneer at any of the local grocery stores, so I ended up making my own by curdling heavy milk with lime juice, and letting it ai...

I am a vegetarian who loves Indian food. Navratan korma is my favorite! There is another vegetable korma recipe that I use at home which I really like, but it's not quite perfect. So when I s...

This is an exception version of the classic Indian dish. This is an excellent opportunity for home cooks to try a complicated Indian dish. The spicing is just right.

Wonderful recipe! You can really use almost whatever veggies you have, which is the beauty of it. I used a red and orange bell pepper, squash, potatoes, tomatoes, golden raisins, carrots, walnut...
