Kormas typically have a gravy made of onions, lots of tomatoes, Cashew nuts and whole spices like cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, coriander, cumin, etc. Korma is a dish that can be made with yoghurt, cream, nut and seed paste or coconut milk which is usually considered a type of curry. Korma can be either vegetarian or non-vegetarian. Some of the very popular Korma recipes prepared at most of the Indian homes and available at most of the restaurants are Chicken Korma, Mutton Korma, Egg Korma and Vegetable Korma.



Traditionally the korma originated from the Mughlai cuisine and spread to the modern day India and Pakistan. There are many techniques and styles of preparing the korma. The taste of Korma is based on the mixture of spices used and the onion-tomato gravy base spiced with ginger garlic paste and green chilies makes it flavorful and spicy. The natural sweetness of Cashew nuts makes the Korma soft, creamy, thick and rich. The korma dish can be mildly spiced or fiery as per ones choice and taste.There are three types of Korma bases.
