We usually look for a spicy taste when it comes to curry. But white curries can also be delicious and chicken Korma is one of them. I'm not a very good cook but I've tried to cook this Chicken Korma Curry (Mom helped a little, but I cooked! :) We eat this curry with pilao rice and it's really tasty. 

Korma is one of the easiest curry recipes and this ible will show you how to cook this white and sweet chicken curry in only 3 steps!

Cut the chicken (skinless) into pieces of your choice and wash them well.

Now take a bowl and mix the chicken pieces with a cup of yogurt.

Cover the mixture and place it in the fridge, while preparing the rest.

Step 3: Cook

Picture of Cook
Take a medium sized pot, preferably heavy with a slightly rounded bottom,

Add soybean oil to the pot and heat oil (medium heat) for a minute or more,

Then add the sliced onions, cinnamon, cardamom and bay leaf. Wait until the onions turn brown.

After the onions turn a little brownish add the garlic, ginger, onion paste and rest of the garam masala.

Within a minute add milk, salt and the marinated chicken, stir for a while.

Add a cup of water and stir often until the chicken is cooked through. Don't let the chicken turn brown.
It'll take around 25-35 minutes.

After the curry is cooked you can serve it with pilao rice. Korma and pilao taste really good together, I love this curry.

 Enjoy! :)
