Nawabi Curry Recipe ( Veg )

Posted by Veena Karanth at 07:15:00
Nawabi curry, a mugalai cuisine is a side dish which is very rich in calories and taste. It is one of the perfect party dishes where you can win accolades and impress your guests. It is mounted with calories and the richness of almonds and kaju can be experienced every time. Also, the freshness of the cream adds to the silkiness of the gravy. Here, a gravy is prepared using almonds and coconut along with some vegetables.You can replace the veggies and add paneer ( cottage cheese ) which is the other version of this recipe and I will be posting it in one of my future blog posts. This curry goes well with Naan, Puri, and chapathi.

Kitchen Masti Points

  1. If you have forgotten to soak poppy seeds ( 2 -3 hours minimum soaking is recommended ), then slightly roast it and grind.
  2. Usually this gravy is not spicy, hence I have added lesser amount of red chillis.
  3. You can increase the amount of milk instead of water and adjust the consistency of gravy.
