Mughlai Shahi Chicken Korma

05 August, 2013

This is a famous Mughlai cuisine which is a gravy with mix of spices, yogurt nuts and butter giving this chicken curry a mouth-watering creamy taste. A traditional mildly sweet, delicious North Indian recipe. When I invited some of my friends yesterday I made this chicken dish and they all appreciated. It tasted really great Give this a try and I hope that you'd really enjoy it!


  • Chicken - 1/2 kg ( with bones)
  • Yogurt -  1 cup
  • Onion - 2 (sliced)
  • Almonds - 8-10 ( blanched)  
  • Raisins - 20 
  • Garlic paste - 2 tsp
  • Ginger paste - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
  • Kashmiri red chilli powder - 2 tsp 
  • Cumin powder - 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1tsp
  • Pepper powder - 1 tsp
  • Mace and Nutmeg powder - 1/2 tsp  each
  • Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt and Sugar to taste
  •  Coriander leaves


  1. Marinate the chicken pieces with ginger garlic paste for 1 hour.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and fry the onion slices till brown. Keep on a paper towel. Now blend half of the fried onion, almonds, raisins with little water to make a smooth paste.
  3. In a small bowl take the yoghurt and add to it turmeric, red chilli, cumin, coriander, pepper powder, nutmeg, mace, cinnamon powder,salt and sugar. Whisk till smooth.
  4.  Heat oil in a pan and add whole peppercorns. When it crackles, add the chicken pieces and fry them till light brown on both sides. Keep aside.
  5. Next pour some oil in the same pan. Add cinnamon and cardamom pods and the almond, raisin and onion paste. Fry till oil starts seperating.
  6. Remove the pan from heat and wait till it cools a bit. Now add the yoghurt mixture and stir well. Transfer the pan again to medium heat.
  7. Add the fried chicken pieces and cook on medium to low heat for 20 mins or till the chicken turns tender. Adjust seasoning.
