Navratan Korma- Navratan korma is a rich luxurious curry dish made with mixed vegetables and a lot of dry fruits. This recipe is flavorful and mildly sweet. It is made with 9 ingredients and consists of plenty of nuts, dry fruits, assorted vegetables, fruits, cream, a lot of spices and a few herbs. There are both vegetarians as well as non-vegetarian versions of preparing this dish.

Navratan Korma refers to ‘nine gems’ which could be the combination of either 9 vegetables or a mixed combo of dry fruits and vegetables. This is a rich, filling and nutritious curry made without cream.

Navratan/Nine jewels

Like I mentioned before, the recipe calls for 9 ingredients and so, here are the 9 ingredients that I have used in the recipe-

✔Potato

✔Cauliflower

✔Beans

✔Carrot

✔Green Peas

✔Cashews

✔Raisins

✔Pomegranate

✔Pineapple

As you can see, I have used a mix of veggies, nuts and fruits here. However, If you don’t have any of these, they can be easily replaced.

For example, you can add paneer and pepper here (red pepper will be nice especially). For nuts, you can use walnuts or almonds in place of cashews. Apple is also often used in navratan korma.

I do love the pineapple here and I would recommend not replacing that though. It is also one of the fruits which you will mostly find in all navratan korma recipes irrespective of how they are made.
