This is an Indian vegetable korma with nuts, paneer and an adjustable list of vegetables. It is in a tomato-cream sauce as opposed to the usual yoghurt based sauce. 'Navratan' means 'nine gems,' so choose nine of the vegetable, nuts and paneer ingredients; you can leave out the elements you don't want to use, or add them all so it is 'ten gems' if you wish.
Blooming amazing! I couldnt get paneer cheese so substituted Halloumi & it worked fine. The mixture of flavours between the nuts, sultanas and cheese is gorgeous. Thanks very much - highly recommended! - 24 Oct 2013
This recipe always gets rave reviews from everyone. I don't use the paneer; instead I bake or saute extra firm tofu (16 oz package), and then put this in near the end of the cooking time. Also, I usually double the veggies and triple the sauce, so it doesn't dry out too much (wonderful w/basmati or naan). The addition of cilantro is nice (if you like it), as well as a pinch of sugar. I plan to try brown sugar next time. Thanks for an awesome recipe!!! - 20 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I absolutely loved this recipe! I did tweek it abit for our personal tastes. We used a chopped tomato instead of tomato sauce and coconut milk for milk and heavy cream. I thought the spicing was just wonderful, we will definitely be eating this again. - 21 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
