Tomato Korma – Magic Mingle #2, February 2012

Magic Mingle#2, a Monthly event, hosted by Kalyani of Sizzling Tastebuds, every month Kalyani will chose 2 different ingredients to be used to together in a Recipe. This Month she gave us Almonds – Ginger.  I tried this Tomato korma, using Badam instead of Cashew nuts. The Gravy tasted so Good and was also Rich.
