                                                           My daughters are a big fan of Navratan kurma and of course me too!! We have tried it in few restaurants but the best we liked it was in Saravana bhavan which has a similar taste to this recipe of mine.I have followed Tarla dala's recipe.In most places it is white gravy with a bland and sweet taste but this one is yellow gravy with a little sweetness.

  • One cup of diced vegetables(beans,carrot,peas,cauliflower) boiled crisp.
