Coming back to Mughlai Chicken Korma it’s easy. Tastes great with pav, paratha and rice. Mainly yogurt, some whole spices, desiccated coconut, almond paste and coriander leaves goes in making this dish. Potatoes are not added to the authentic dish however I have added them as we love potatoes in chicken curry. SO it’s optional to add potatoes.
