Well dear friends, wishing you all a great week ahead...Let our week be colourful, rich and spicy like a navaratan korma... To be honest I was not a huge fan of vegetables when I was a kid said "no""no" to chilli. But this is a great dish and I loved it. It has all my enemy veggies same time it is rich with coconut cream, sweet raisins, cashew and the gravy..yummy yummy. If you want to avoid ghee, cream, paneer and the dry nuts you are going to get a low fat curry..:P. 

Normally i tend to post a finished curry snap, but after looking at the rich colours I thought why cant I give it a go for ingredients this time. That is why my shot is like this... Thanking you again for your encouragement. What we need?
