Lamb Korma with Curd Curry

On with 0 Comment
Lamb korma is undoubtedly one of the finest and the most delicious meat preparations of Indian sub-continent. It's aromatic and fulfilling at the same time. This preparation tastes best when you use tender boneless lamb meat. Make sure you use a heavy base cooking pan for optimum cooking and best results. As an experiment, you can also add sliced baked potatoes in your korma. If you want, you can also add cashew paste to the curry to make it more rich and tasty. I prefer to serve it with rich fried rice or butter coated Indian naan. Almost in the same way, you can also prepare chicken korma. So, let's make this rich, exotic and pungent lamb korma preparation for our family members.
