I am not very much fond of vegetables but when it comes to Navratan Korma, i change my mind :) I learned this dish from my brother-in-law ,Shuvendu.He is a very good cook.Navratan Korma is delicious combination of several vegetables.

The 'Navratan' means , the nine different vegetables.It is Muglai cuisine but popular among all Indians.According to the name, the dish should contains nine different vegetables (like potatoes, french beans, capsicum, carrot,green peas,cabbage, bottle gourd,Cauliflower) but there is no hard and fast rules.You can omit or add any other tasty vegetables (which are suitable for the dish).

Here in my recipe, I also omit cabbage and bottle gourd from the ingredients and add cottage cheese, dry fruits as well.So one can experiments the dish depends on taste.

The dish has a great health value as well as taste because of all green vegetables.The ingredients are also easily available.So don't wait, try it out at home.Hope you people like the recipe.
