Servings: 4


1 1/2 lb poultry or meat
1/2 cup cashews, almonds or mixture
1/2 inch chopped fresh ginger
1 clove garlic chopped
2 green chillies (optional)
1/2 teaspoon saffron
2 tablespoon warm milk
1 tablespoon ghee
2 tablespoon sunflower or corn oil
1 medium onion chopped
3 oz yoghurt
3 oz cream
1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander
1 salt
1 lemon juice (optional)
2 whole cardamoms
3 whole cloves
1 inch cassia bark
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1 teaspoon cummin seeds

Directions: How to Cook Korma

1) Cut the meat into 1 inch cubes (the poultry on or off the bone, to taste) 2) Blend the nuts, ginger, garlic and chilles into a course paste with 1/4 pint of water 3) Soak the saffron in warm milk for 10 minutes. 4) Heat the ghee and oil together, then fry the spices then onion until golden. Add the nut paste and yoghurt, and cok for 10 minutes or so. 5) Add the meat, mixing in well. Simmer for about 1 hour or until the meat is tender. Add water bit by bit if needed. 6) About 10 minutes before serving, squeeze the saffron strands in their bowl to get the most colour out of them then add in, with the milk. Add the cream, fresh coriander and salt to taste. Garnish with lemon juice if liked. Notes: 1) Coriander. You may know it as "cilantro or Chinese parsley" 2) Cassia bark. Similar to cinnamon but with a sweet musky fragrance. 3) When frying the spices use a gentle heat as they are easily burnt!! True kormas are spicy, not hot, and a Moghul creation. Their special feature is a creamy sauce with nut and safron. They can be made with chicken (my favourite), duck, lamb, beef or mutton and should be served with plain or pullao rice.

This is misclassified. It's not a vegetarian recipe--the first ingredient is meat.
