Vegetable Hara Korma (mix Veggies In Green Coriander Gravy)
‘Mixed Vegetables in creamy coconut and coriander gravy’, was the reply when I asked the person serving food at a small hotel in Banaras. I always prefer to eat vegetarian food when I am travelling. Few years ago when I went to attend a marriage ceremony of my cousin in Benaras, one day we were out for site seeing. By late afternoon we reached “ Nalanda’ and we stopped at a food joint for Lunch. The menu was vegetarian comprising of ‘Makki ki kachori’, ‘Dal fry’, ‘Potato bhaji’ ‘Hara Pulao’ and ‘ Vegetable Hara Korma’. I have had vegetable korma many times and I knew it has a coconut, curd and cashew gravy but ‘Hara Korma’ was new for me. The taste was different than usual korma and I could get a relatively strong flavor of Cardamom, which made the dish unique. I tried it two three times at home and somehow I could match the taste. Here is my version of ‘vegetable hara korma’, if you have a better version or can suggest improvement please share.
