BRITISH INDIAN RESTAURANT FOOD (BIR)

Chicken Korma

Chicken Korma

Although Korma is commonly known as a very mild sweet curry its roots are far from it. It is basically a slow-cooked curry traditionally and can be extremely hot.  However, in British restaurants, it is normally served BIR style and is very quick to cook and produces a sweet creamy curry with little to no heat so suitable for everyone who doesn't like hot spices.

Normally yellow in colour and served as a chicken dish although any meat can be used.

As you can see from the ingredients this is not the healthiest of curry's and most people will be shocked by the amount of sugar and cream used. But if you want it as good as your local takeaway then that's what you will need. A typical chicken korma is around 1000 calories and that's not including rice, naan, etc but hell it tastes good. :)
