Navratan Kurma

Navaratan Kurma is a rich, popular North Indian curry. I like the rich, creamy, sweet taste of this curry. But this particular recipe tasted more like Thai red curry.. may be because I didn’t use any sweet-giving ingredients, such as pineapple/raisins, as I didn’t have any.. 
Otherwise, I followed the recipe as it is...


Mixed vegetables - Carrot, Beans, Peas, Cauliflower, Capsicum, Potatoes
Chopped Onion - 1 medium
Tomato - 1 big
Pineapple chunks - 1/4 cup
Raisins - 2 tsp

Garlic - 3 pods
Green chili - 1

Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Cloves - 4
Cinnamon - 2 inch
Cardamom - 3
Bay Leaf - 1

Chili Powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp

Milk - 1/2 cup
Yoghurt - 1/4 cup

Oil/butter - 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves

to grind
Cashews/Almonds(peel skin after soaking) soaked in warm water for 15 min
Coconut - 2 tbsp


Heat oil/butter in a pan. Add spices. Add onions, garlic and green chili. After they are translucent, add tomatoes. Add vegetables except capsicum and all the powders. Add some water and cover and cook till it’s almost done. Add capsicum and boil for couple more minutes till it’s done. Add milk, yoghurt, ground paste, pineapple, raisins and cook for 5 more minutes.  Garnish with coriander leaves .
