How to make Chicken Korma

  1. Cut the chicken thighs into small pieces and wash it properly.
  2. In a mixer, add garlic, ginger and blanched almonds to make a smooth paste.
  3. Then add yogurt, salt and red chilli powder to the almond paste and marinate the chicken pieces for 2-3 hours. Chop the onion finely, keep it aside.
  4. Add 2 tbsp oil on the heated pan. Add the cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, black pepper, bay leaf and whole cumin seeds.
  5. When the cumin seeds crackle, add the onions and fry till it turns golden brown. Add the chopped tomato and fry till its tender.
  6. Add the chicken pieces and cook for another 10-15 mins or till the pieces are tender.
  7. The flame should be medium low and the chicken is to be continuously stirred. Add a little water only if needed, otherwise it's not required. Once done, add the garam masala powder and kasuri methi.
  8. Serve it hot with rice or roti.

My Tip:

Cooking on a low flame brings out a great flavour in the chicken.
