Korma is very familiar side dish for roti varieties. It is bit different from original kormas. I used turnip as main ingredient in this side dish. My husband is picky food eater. I thought of doing something different on my 4th wedding anniversary. It should be healthy as well as have to get good marks from my husband. I tried this recipe. It came out awesome. My hubby loved it very much and drowned me on his praising showers. I was flying. My lil. one also loved it very much and told Amma Kumma super ikki :) I was flying flying flying.... for the whole day. I told my mom that she was very glad to hear this. It is my own recipe. It came as my hubby and lil. Prince's favorite. SO I would like to dedicate this recipe to MY HUBBY and MY LIL. PRINCE
