Coming back to Mughlai Chicken Korma it’s easy. Tastes great with pav, paratha and rice. Mainly yogurt, some whole spices, desiccated coconut, almond paste and coriander leaves goes in making this dish. Potatoes are not added to the authentic dish however I have added them as we love potatoes in chicken curry. So it’s optional to add potatoes.

I am waiting for hubby to taste as made this for the first time. He is my best critic so anxiously await for his reaction and feedback. I am feeling very happy and positive today sometimes we all do right??? The wait is over he loved the curry :) :) am so happy….

Feel like partying harder and taking more small breaks. It’s rightly said when you go for a break you never feel like getting back to work. But for a change I am happy to work and get back.
