Korma is an increasingly popular dish, whether people choose chicken, lamb, shrimp or fish as their selected variation. The main ingredient is braised with yogurt, cream, water or stock as well as spices. The thick sauce includes dried coconut and is topped with raisins and cashew nuts.
But where did korma originate? India of course – the word itself means to braise – and it was reported to have been served to guests welcomed by Shah Jahan, the fifth Mughal emperor, at the opening of the Taj Mahal in the middle of the seventeenth century. Korma had already been known for about another century before that and is reckoned to be a typical Mughal dish – the cuisine style known as Mughlai – from that period.
Korma is one of the many popular options superbly prepared and presented by the team at Serene Cuisine of India. You’ll find our welcoming Indian Restaurant on South University Boulevard right here in Denver.
