Navratan Korma

This is a simple and tasty korma which is mixture of vegetables in a light gravy. You can add any vegetables of your choice in this recipe. Even you can add paneer. Just cut it into cubes, fry it in oil and add along with the capsicum.

Instead of milk, you can add cream. But i think milk is very light and is a healthy alternative. It gives a nice taste to the dish. This dish tastes good if you add coconut milk instead of milk. Its up to you....you can make this dish with any of the above mentioned alternatives and iam sure the dish would be perfect.
