CHICKEN RECIPES - CHICKEN KORMA

CHICKEN IN COCONUT PASTE GRAVY

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. Kerala or Malabar style chicken korma is a very popular chicken dish which is served along with Malabar rice pathiri or Malabar ghee rice. The flavor and texture of this curry are really impressive and is heavenly delicious.
