Vegetable korma is traditionally made in party or weddings over here.It is cooked in a Rich Cashew Sauce for a long time.But I had made it so simple and easy.I substituted Cashews with Poppy Seeds,it gives you the same silkyness that you get from Cashewnut with out worrying about the calories.Please don’t forget to add Raisans,because it gives you the sweetness which was perfect.I served it with Flaky Paratha(check out the recipe here )So please try it out and let me know what you think.
