Purani Dilli Special, Old Delhi Style Chicken Korma Recipe


Welcome to the world of Old Delhi's special chicken korma! A dish that has been passed down for generations, with a unique blend of spices and flavors.


First, marinate the chicken with yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, and a pinch of turmeric. Let it sit for at least an hour to absorb all the flavors.


In a pan, heat ghee and add whole spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves. Let them sizzle for a few seconds before adding chopped onions.


Once the onions turn golden brown, add the marinated chicken and cook until it turns white. Then, add a spoonful of coriander powder and red chili powder.


Next, add a cup of water and let the chicken cook on low flame for 15-20 minutes. This will allow the chicken to absorb all the spices and become tender.


Now, it's time to add the star ingredient - cashew paste. This will give the korma a rich and creamy texture. Let it cook for another 5 minutes.


To enhance the flavor, add a pinch of garam masala and a handful of chopped coriander leaves. Let it simmer for a few minutes before turning off the flame.


Your Old Delhi style chicken korma is almost ready! Serve it hot with naan or rice and garnish with more coriander leaves and a sprinkle of garam masala.
