Veg Korma

Great looking, no?
It was Delicious too.
My first Vegetable Korma.. A prelude to Vegetable Kolhapuri.. Anybody tell me how to cook Shahi Paneer Korma.. I will cook it too.
Oh! Happy Valentine's day to all the Ladies..
Will write up the post a little later.. don't mind puhleez.. Me tired today..

The recipe now:


half a cup each of carrots, french beans, Potatoes, cauliflower, capsicum.
Cut the vegetables into small half inch cubes and keep aside. Don't boil.

Chop one onion.
5-6 flakes of garlic and an inch of ginger the size of your middle finger crushed.
Soak half a TSP each of jeera and meethi (not leaves) in water.(My trademark, it helps)
Bayleaves and 2 Red Chilli

Heat 2 TBS oil in a pan
Put 1 or 2 bay leaves and 2 red chilli.
Immediately put the soaked jeera and methi.
Now add the Onion and saute till transparent.
Add the ginger garlic paste.
When mixture turns slightly brown, add the vegetables and saute well.
Add half Tsp each of jeera powder, red chilli powder, dhania powder,
turmeric powder and Garam masala and mix well.

Then, Add half a cup of coconut milk and let shimmer.
Cover and cook in low heat for 10 minutes.
Open lid from time to time and mix.
When liquid begin to dry, open and increase heat.
Saute well.
Add salt to taste.
Now add a cup of hot water and let shimmer.
Cook for 10 minutes in medium heat and garnish with coriander .
