About

Korma is one of the popular dishes in the United Kingdom. Korma is characterized by a thick creamy sauce, mild spices and nuts and raisins. This is my version of Korma. I am not using onions or yoghurt but I do make use of almond paste or powder and poppy seeds. You can find almond powder in Indian supermarkets. Almond paste is essential and coconut milk. I use vegetable oil instead of ghee to keep the korma healthy.
