How to Make Korma badami

  • Slice the onion finely and fry in the ghee/oil on very low flame till they are golden brown.
  • Remove the fried onion from the oil and keep aside.
  • In the oil, add all the spices (except the nutmeg, sugar and Kewra) with a little water to prevent burning.
  • Add the meat and mix well with the spices.
  • When the water of the meat has dried, add 2-3 glasses of water (1 glass is enough for chicken).
  • By now, the fried onion would have cooled and turned crisp.
  • Crush it and add to the pot.
  • Cover and cook on low heat till the meat is tender.
  • When the meat has softened and the gravy has acquired the desired consistency, add a pinch of nutmeg (jaiphal) and mace (Javitri), kewra, almond and sugar.
  • Leave on very low heat (dum) for two minutes.
  • Serve hot with naan.
