This dish is adapted from a favourite family recipe. It's a savoury, tomato-based dish with creamed coconut and an intoxicating mixture of aromatic spices such as star anise and black cardamom.
Origins: The Moghuls from the northern part of India originally created this dish. They would make it with fragrant spices, nuts, saffron and plenty of cream. Our Korma has a more South Indian influence, where the Moghul dynasty ended. The difference is that the combination of coconut cream and tomatoes infused with spices create a much less sweet dish. The addition of nuts and cream as a garnish are purely optional.
Try it with chicken and potatoes (Rafi's favourite!) or roasted vegetables.

I love our Korma, it’s not sweet as in restaurants, but much earthier, with coconut. I like mine quite hot, and I grate some (well, loads) of fresh ginger in to pep it up a bit. Chicken thighs are the best, but potatoes and cauliflower is also great. Quick-pickled red onion is delicious with this curry!Hana
