Chicken Korma

The word 'Korma' basically means braising. It usually has a blend of spices like ground cumin and coriander and cook with yogurt instead of coconut milk. The curry is full of spice flavours with creamy and thick gravy, goes well with a plate of basmati rice but I love to serve it with some homemade Naan bread
