CHICKEN WHITE KORMA-SUCCULENT PIECES OF CHICKEN IN A SUBTLE WHITE SAUCE!

WHITE GRAVY- A different version of "KORMA",In this we avoid using chillies of any kind and if one wishes a little spice then green chillies and red chillies should be avoided and use White pepper powder to give the spice and keep the color white,Its a very creamy and subtle gravy yet very very exotic in its taste.A great blend of mughlai and nawabi cuisine.
Heres the recipe:
Cooking time: 35mins.
Preparation time:15mins
Serves:-5 persons.

Ingredients:
  • Chicken-500gms(medium sized pieces)
  • Cashewnuts/Kaju- 15no
  • Almonds/badam- 15no
  • Curd-200gms.
  • White pepper powder/Safed kali mirch- 1tsp
  • Ginger paste/Adrak-1tsp
  • Garlic paste/Lehsun-1tsp
  • Rose water-1tsp
  • Thin cream-3tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil/Ghee-2tbsp.
Cooking method:
  • Wash the chicken pieces thoroughly and squeeze out all the excess water.
  • Soak almonds and cashewnuts in a cup of hot water for about 20 mins.When cool peel the almonds,throw the peel and grind both in the same water to a very smooth paste.
  • Beat curd till smooth and lump free.
  • In a deep pan heat oil and add ginger and garlic paste saute for a minute and then add the chicken pieces,Cook for about 5 mins on a high flame,stirring continously to avoid burning.Now add the curd and the kaju and badam paste,pepper powder and salt with 1/2 cup of water,Cover and cook on a slow flame for about 20 mins.Check in between,this gravy has a tendency to stick to the bottom,Add lil water if needed.
  • The gravy at this stage will be thick and the chicken cooked,Add rose water and the cream and cook covered for another 2 mins.
  • Ready to serve.
