DHANIWAL KORMA / KASHMIRI LAMB CORIANDER KORMA


Dhaniwal Korma is a flavourful lamb curry from Kashmir. It has a rich and creamy gravy with nut paste and flavoured with spices and saffron. You can relish it with Khamiri roti or Kashmiri pulao.

 In our group, "Shhhhh Cooking Secretly"  the theme of the month is "Jammu and Kashmiri Cuisine"
I am paired with Sasmita Sahoo Samantha who gave me the 2 secret ingredients - Mutton and Yogurt.
