Korma or kurma is a dish

Korma or kurma is a dish originating in South Asia or Central Asia which can be made with yogurt, cream,
nut and seed pastes or coconut milk; it is usually considered a type of stew.
Korma has its roots in the Mughlai cuisine of modern day India and Pakistan.
The flavor of a korma is based on a mixture of spices, including ground coriander and cumin, combined with yogurt kept below curdling temperature and incorporated slowly and carefully.
A dish called "korma" is very popular in Indian and Pakistani restaurants in the United Kingdom. In UK korma 

may be mildly spicy and may often feature nuts, usually almonds or cashews, and coconut.
Navratan korma is a vegetarian korma made with vegetables and either paneer (an Indian cheese) or nuts or sometimes both.
"Navratan" means nine gems, and it is common for the recipe to include nine different vegetables.
