Chicken Korma

Posted on 26 Jan 2013

Indian, rather: South Asian, cuisine has always been one of my favourites; I love the multitude of spices and really great, strong flavours.

A korma is a dish that originates in the South Asian region, it is a curry which usually contains yoghurt or cream and is based on a mixture of spices with the yoghurt and the juices from a protein (usually chicken or lamb).

Prep Time 10 minutes
