Today I am going to share you the recipe of Chicken Korma, which is a traditional South Indian dish.  Since coconut is available abundantly in South India especially in Kerala, people always prefer this chicken dish than any other one.  Children also like to have this as it is less spicy compared to the other Indian dishes.
