Lamb Korma

by Aida Azizuddin on Thu, December 16, 2010

I love a good, earthy korma don’t you? Not as spicy as a curry, a korma gets it’s subtle heat from the fragrant spices within.

An earthy korma for you to lick your lips around.

Serves 5 - 6 people

Very fragrant with the taste of the Indian subcontinent
