Chicken Korma

History
 
The word "korma" is derived from Urdu ḳormā or ḳormah, meaning "braise", derived in turn from Turkish kavurma, literally meaning "cooked meat".
Korma (قورمه in Persian) has its roots in the Mughlai cuisine of modern-day India and Pakistan. It is a characteristic Moghul dish which can be traced back to the 16th century and to the Mughal incursions into present-day Northern India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Classically, a korma is defined as a dish where meat or vegetables are braised with water, stock, and yogurt or cream added. The technique covers many different styles of korma.
 
The flavour of a korma is based on a mixture of spices, including ground coriander and cumin, combined with yogurt kept below curdling temperature and incorporated slowly and carefully with the meat juices. Traditionally, this would have been carried out in a pot set over a very low fire, with charcoal on the lid to provide all-round heat. A korma can be mildly spiced or fiery and may use lamb, chicken, beef or game; some kormas combine meat and vegetables such as spinach and turnip. The term Shahi (English: Royal), used for some kormas indicates its status as a prestige dish, rather than an everyday meal, and its association with the court.
 
 
In the United Kingdom, a korma is a mildly spiced dish with a thick sauce, served in curry houses. It often features almonds, cashews or other nuts, and coconut or coconut milk.

James McDonald // Curry Eater

My daughter and I ate what I consider is the best Indian meal I have ever eaten. The food was excellent, especially the Curry. The service was discrete efficient. This restaurant is a cut above the average and I would wholehearted recommend without any reservations whatsoever. Good pricing too.
