The Secret Ingredient of Authentic Chicken Korma

The Secret Ingredient of Authentic Chicken Korma.

Chicken Korma is a quintessentially Indian curry. Whenever I'm craving some good old Indian dish, I always lean towards Korma, and it is rich, creamy, and flavorsome. Every bite is yummy, and the minute you finish it, you'll crave more. 

It's just one of those dishes which make us a fan of Indian cuisine. Korma's versatility and the fact that you can pair it with almost anything, be it rice, or naan makes it one of the best dishes out there. It balances out all the spices so well that it feels like a loaded flavor bomb.

The best part about a korma is the gravy that binds together every element to form an immersive taste, which is hard to forget.

Where did Chicken Korma come from?

Kormas origins can be looked back to the Mughal times. It is a culmination of Persian, Indian, and Asian cuisines together to form a rich flavor. The word Korma means to braise the meat. So, in the korma style of cooking, the meat is first sauteed in ghee (clarified butter) or oil to make the meat more juicy and soft.

Korma was so popular during the Mughal times that it was served to Shah Jahan and his guests during Taj Mahal's inauguration. It was said to have been decorated with silver foil. It's fascinating to know how great and popular the dish must have been to serve at an important event.

Korma can be made with various kinds of meats like lamb, beef, and the beloved chicken korma. Amazingly, a dish served thousands of years ago to Shah Jahan still hasn't lost its popularity.

So, what makes Chicken Korma so popular?

It's the mild spice, rich gravy, and smooth texture that ensures a flavorful bite each time. It's a taste unlike any Indian curry you'll try, and it's sure to stay with you for a long time. 

Unveiling the Authentic Chicken Korma Recipe.

Korma is the mildest Indian curry. What makes it mild is the range of ingredients used in its making.

  • Main components include yogurt, chicken (legs, thighs, breasts, boneless, or a mix), heavy cream or coconut milk, ghee, and onion.
  • The nut-filled flavor comes from the addition of dried coconut, almonds, and cashews.
  • Aromatic spices like Bay leaves, Cumin, Black pepper, Green and Black Cardamon, and Cloves.
  • Indian Masalas include coriander powder, paprika or red chili, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, and curry powder.
  • You can also use optional ingredients like fried onions, mace, kewra water, and tomato puree.

What's the Difference Between Chicken Korma and Chicken Tikka Korma?

Both of them use the korma gravy in the final making. The main difference is that the chicken in the chicken tikka korma is baked using skewers in a charcoal furnace, adding smoky aftertaste. No such addition is there in the making of traditional chicken korma.

How do I add flavor to Korma?
