Navaratna “nine gems”, and this curry is made with nine different vegetables, fruits and nuts this recipe can be best described as a princess… swet, dainty and royal. Paneer mingles well with the mélange of vegetables and fruits in this mild yet luscious curry. The silver varq gives it a fitting finishing touch.
