This delicious and flavorful chicken korma is everything you need to lift up your mood!
Hyderabadi Chicken Korma is an ultimate delight for chicken lovers!
The first korma recipe originated from the Indian Subcontinent back in the 16th century.
The word korma is derived from an Urdu word with the meaning “braise.”
Braising of meat is often referred to as pot roasting though some cooks make a distinction between the two methods, based on whether additional liquid is added.
Typically, the chicken korma recipe is known as a dish in which meat and veggies are braised with stock, water, and yogurt or cream.
The korma can be mildly spiced or fiery and can be made with chicken, meat, veal and beef.
