I have started eating Non vegetarian food very late in my life and which also means I started cooking it also very late. But I never panic because my father cooks excellent chicken and by the grace of God I have friends who always come forward to share their recipes and tips to make everything fabulous. The other night I wanted to try out a new recipe of Chicken and I resorted to my bestie Shaheen’s blog Spoon Fork and Food. It has some amazing recipes from lip smacking non vegetarian dishes to delicious, divine vegetarian food.

The recipe was self explanatory and came out just amazing. Its a regular at our place now. Whenever we have chicken my husband insists that we must make this again. The addition of nuts and coconut enhances the texture of the chicken and makes it from ordinary to  extraordinary. If you are looking for a recipe to win your heart and stomach you must continue to read the recipe.

12. When the entire liquid has evaporated and ghee is separated add onion paste and roasted nuts mixture and combine well. Keep stirring and let the chicken cook on low flame till done. You shouldn’t need any water as there is enough curd. But if you feel the spice is getting stuck to the bottom, add little water and keep cooking till the chicken is done. It should take 20-25 minutes for the chicken to cook. You can add more Ghee to the chicken if you feel its dry. The korma tastes better with more ghee oozing out.. as a matter of fast all dishes do 😉 But a little butter or ghee never hurts anyone 😛
