Carrot Korma

Korma is one of the favourite side dish for many people. My husband and I love to eat korma. I have made Navrathna korma and Mixed vegetable korma many times, but this one is different from those. One day I was in a hurry and had no time to chop the vegetables and want to make something best in less time. So opted for this recipe. When the gravy started to boil, Krish entered appreciating about the aroma of the korma. He said it is tempting. Yes you get a very good aroma from the ground masala and the vegetables added. You cannot resist yourself from tasting it.
