With good doses of milk, fresh cream, ghee, cashews and poppy seeds, korma rice is undoubtedly rich fare, but surprisingly it is not too spicy as it uses only moderate doses of common spices and powders. Plus, the use of moong sprouts in the korma gives a healthy twist to the recipe.

A very delicious rice, layered with tangy rich moong sprouts gravy. When i made this, i used little fried onions and cashewnuts on top before baking. It was just perfect..
