Recipe for Qorma Badami

Ingredients

  • 1 Kg mutton or chicken
  • 100 grm almond (blanched)
  • 4 black cardamom (Bari Ilaichi) seeds
  • 18 green cardamom (Chhoti Ilaichi)
  • 24 cloves (Laung)
  • 24 whole black pepper (Kali Mirch)
  • 8 tsp. coriander (Dhaniya) powder
  • 250 grm. onion
  • 1 to 1½ tsp. salt (according to taste)
  • 1 ½ tbs. garlic (Lehsan) paste
  • 1 tbs. ginger (Adrak) paste
  • 250 grm. yogurt 1½ to 2 tsp.
  • chili (Lal Mirch) powder 250 grm.
  • ghee or oil.
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg (Jaiphal)
  • mace (Javitri) powder
  • 1 tbs. of Kewra
  • 1 tsp. sugar

Cooking Directions

Slice the onion finely and fry in the ghee/oil on very low flame till they are golden-brown.

Remove the fried onion from the oil and keep aside. In the oil add all the spices (except the nutmeg, sugar and Kewra) with a little water to prevent burning.

Add the meat and mix well with the spices. When the water of the meat has dried, add 2-3 glasses of water (1 glass enough for chicken). By now the fried onion would have cooled and turned crisp. Crush it and add it to the pot.

Cover and cook on low flame till the meat is tender. When the meat has softened and the gravy has acquired the desired consistency, add a pinch of Nutmeg (jaiphal) and Mace (Javitri), Kewra, almond and sugar. Leave on very low heat (dum) for two minutes.
Serve hot with naan.
Serving: 6 to 8 persons.
