In the big world of Indian cuisine, there are numerous delicacies that make it difficult for us to fix a few. But, there is one dish that has been associated with this cuisine for many centuries, and it is also regarded as the ‘King of Indian Curries.’ Do you know which dish we are talking about? Well, it is the outstanding, delicious, and soul-satisfying Korma.
It is believed that Korma has its origins in the countries of Turkey, Persia, and Azerbaijan, and its name is derived from the Turkish word ‘Kavurma,’ which is also associated with Arabic and Urdu by roots. The introduction of Korma to Indian cuisine happened during the reign of the Mughals, as the first mention of this dish was found in the scrolls of Dastarkhwan, the royal table of the Mughals. It can be said that the Mughals came up with a perfect blend of the Turkish ‘Kavurma,’ Persian ‘Ghormeh,’ and Azerbaijan ‘Quovurma’ to reward us with the present-day Korma that we enjoy. Since then, Korma has evolved with time, and there have been numerous variations, but the Mughal Korma remains the most-loved recipe.
The Korma we relish in present times is cooked with meat marinated with traditional herbs and spices, which is roasted in ghee. The creamy gravy is also an essential element that makes Korma incredibly delicious. The spices and meat fat add a rich flavor and glaze to this mouthwatering delicacy. But, if you think it might take a lot of time to cook this traditional dish, don’t worry because here’s the surprise for you.
