Prep Time: 10-15 mins
Cooking Time: 20-30 mins
Serves: 3-4

4-5 cups Mixed Vegetables (I used Carrot, Cauliflower, Potato, Beans & Peas)
1 large Tomato/Tomato Puree
1 tsp Ginger & Garlic Paste
½ tsp Turmeric Powder
1-2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tbsp Oil (Preferably Mustard Oil)
1 tbsp Coriander Leaves, finely chopped
Salt to taste

Ground to Paste:
2½-3 tbsp Fresh/Frozen Coconut gratings
½ tbsp Poppy Seeds/Posta Daana
10 Cashew Nuts
5 Almonds
1 tsp Sugar
2-3 Green Chillies
¾-1 Packed Cup Coriander Leaves

Cook mixed vegetables in enough water and salt to taste for about 10 minutes and keep aside. Vegetables should be just tender. Drain the water from vegetables and keep aside. Also save 2-3 cups of drained water.
Heat oil in a pan and to this add ginger-garlic paste. Sauté for about 30 seconds till the raw smell disappears.
Now add ground paste and sauté continuously for about 2-3 minutes.
To this mix in chopped tomato or tomato puree, turmeric powder and chilli powder and sauté for another minute or two.
Mix cooked vegetables and drained water (vegetable stock) and mix well. Cook at a medium to low heat. Bring the korma to boil and simmer for another 5 minutes till the flavours blend well.
Serve hot garnished with finely chopped coriander leaves with rice or roties.
