Navratan Korma

Navratan Korma is a lovely vegetarian and gluten free dish that tastes divine.  Navratan is a Muglai Indian dish meaning nine gems for the variety of vegetables, nuts and cheese used in it.  Korma is a term used to describe the method of cooking which is the braising of the veggies, its also used to describe a dish that has a thick cream based sauce or gravy.
Like many recipes, there are many variations out there, for example, Muglai cuisine generates from the Northern parts of India while the addition of the bay leaves is something more commonly found in Southern regions.

Chanterelle Mushrooms, The Hunt Is On

With the fragrance of an apricot and a slight peppery flavor, Chanterelle mushrooms are one of the very best in the mushroom family, in my humble opinion.  They are considered by many to be as special and gourmet as a truffle and their cost is not cheap. They are a beautiful color, an orange yellow shade that shines brightly from the green it attempts to hide in while growing.  Ours were mostly growing in mossy areas close to trees.
