Navratan Korma is one North India’s most famous dishes and is made with 9 kinds of veggies and fruits, apart from the spices, that is. The curry dish goes excellent with naan, parathas and even rice.
To make the Navratan Korma, firstly, the green chillies, coriander leaves, garlic and ginger needs to be ground with water into a paste. Next, divide the 225 grams of paneer into two batches before frying each batch until they get a golden-brown colour and remove them and keep it aside. Add the ground paste to the oil, stir-frying it until they’re golden brown, while drizzling a little milk.
Now is the time to add garam masala, red chillies, cumin, turmeric, salt and veggies, and stir-fry the mixture for about 2 minutes. The remaining water, curd and tomato puree go in next, and you need to mix and cook on low flame till the veggies are cooked.
Finally, add almonds, cashew nuts, pineapple and the paneer to the mixture, stir and allow it to simmer on medium heat for 3 more minutes. Voila! Your Navratan Korma is ready to be served.
