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!

Step 2: Preparing Chicken and Onion
Cut the chicken (skinless) into pieces of your choice and wash them well.
