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!

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 to the oil.

Step 3: Cooking

Fry and stir onion for 3-4 minutes but don't let the onions turn brown

After 3-4 minutes add the garlic paste, ginger paste, salt, cumin powder and coriander powder. Mix them really well.

After a minute or so add cinnamon, cardamom and bay leaf into the pot.

Finally add the yogurt mixed chicken, spices and mix them very well.

Wait until the chicken changes color into light brown (this will take around 5-6 minutes) and then add the milk.

Add a cup of water and stir frequently for a while.

Cover the pot until the chicken is cooked through. Don't let the chicken turn brown. It'll take around 15 minutes.

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