You’ll find it in a restaurant menu in London, in a wedding feast in Chennai, or a weekend dinner in New Delhi. That’s how popular this rich, semi-sweet vegetable dish is.

Navratna Korma features a delectable assortment of vegetables and fruits in an intense gravy burgeoning with cashew paste and cream. This gravy gets its subtle sweetness from pineapple cubes and pineapple syrup, which give it a mild, tongue-tickling tang as well. Enjoy it fresh with naan or parathas .
