Vegetable Korma

On a cold, winter night, vegetable korma warms the tummy.  This recipe is easy on the budget and calories.  Total time to prep and cook is less than an hour.  Usually on a work night, I try to prepare food under 30 minutes.  If there is extra time in the schedule, consider making this dish.
