This navratan korma recipe is an Indian vegetable curry with nuts, paneer cheese, and an adjustable list of vegetables. It is in a tomato-cream sauce as opposed to the usual yogurt-based sauce. Navratan means "nine gems," so choose nine of the vegetable, nuts, and paneer ingredients; you can leave out the elements you don't want to use, or add them all so it is "ten gems" if you wish.

  • Heat remaining oil in a separate skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the paneer on both sides, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Place in a bowl with enough hot water to cover for about 2 minutes to soften, then stir into the skillet with the vegetables.

  • Stir milk and cream into the skillet with the vegetables and paneer. Bring to a boil, and continue cooking, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt to taste.
