This is a popular traditional dish in the northern part of India.  Its name refers to a creamy dish mixed with vegetables and aromatic spices cooked in a mildly flavored sauce.  This delicious curry is quick to make and tastes awesome. It can be served with green pulao, spinach raita and wheat bread/nan, which makes a complete meal.  It is a source of vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and fiber. We will use masala, which is a mixture of several spices, to enhance the taste and aroma of the food.
