One of the most popular dishes in the Indian cuisine is Korma, which derives from the Turkish word 'Kavurma' that means cooked meat. This popular technique of braising vegetables and meat with yogurt, cream, stock and various spices is a favourite among a large population across the country. Korma is believed to have been invented during the Mughal era. The flavour of this shahi dish is based on a mixture of spices, including coriander and cumin, combined with yogurt kept below curdling temperature and carefully added with meat juices. It is cooked slowly on a low flame for a longer period to attain various flavours of the spices. It tastes best when savoured with Indian breads like Khamiri Roti, Roomali Roti and even Tandoori Roti.
