What is Chicken Korma?
Chicken korma is unlike any ordinary chicken curry because it includes the richness of spices, nuts, fried onions, creams and ghee among other things.
The origin of the chicken korma traces back to the 16th century during the Mughal dynasty in India.
Hailing from Persia, kormas were often prepared in the Mughal kitchens for the royal family.
A murgh korma ki recipe can be mildly spicy or highly spicy, depending upon the region of preparation.
Also, kormas are not restricted to chicken only but can also be prepared with other proteins such as lamb.
In addition, some favourite kormas in India are also made of vegetables only, such as potatoes, beans and carrots.
Authentic Chicken Korma Recipe
If it is the authenticity that you demand in your chicken korma ki recipe, then you should go with the traditional style, and we will tell you how!
Heat oil in a large and deep pan on high heat.
Add onions and saute till they are crispy and golden brown. Remove the onions and keep them aside in a closed steel box with kitchen tissue to absorb the excess oil.
To the remaining oil in the pan, add the cardamom pods, black peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon and black cumin seeds and fry until fragrant.
Add the chicken pieces and roast them for 3 minutes on medium heat.
Add the ginger and garlic pastes, followed by red chilli powder and salt.
Cook the ingredients for another 3 minutes or till the chicken changes its colour.
Add yoghurt and 2 cups of water, cover and cook the chicken for 30 minutes or till the chicken is cooked through.
Once the chicken is done, crush the fried onions and garnish your korma with them.
Also add rose water essence, fresh coriander leaves, almonds and cashews.
Serve hot with naan, lachcha paratha, chapatti or steamed basmati rice.
