Navrathan Korma


Ken’s note about Navrathan:

Written in large letters at Jubilee’s Cascading Kitchen is “Food is Precious”.   Navrathan means “nine jewells”; reminding us of the treasure of good food.  The name and the dish honors a group of nine extraordinary people in the Mughal Emperor Akbar’s  (1556-1605)court in India.  This food is another reminder of the inextricable link between good food and good people.  Gather your nine friends and share a feast! (You may need to double the recipe.)
