The name Korma is an anglicisation of the Urdu word qormā, which means to braise. Korma chicken is the most popular curry dish in the United Kingdom. It replaced the former favourite Chicken Tikka Masala as the most popular chicken curry in the 21 st century. While this recipe calls for Chillies and chilli powder, Korma chicken served in curry houses is usually relatively mild. If a lower heat level is preferred, the chillies can be left out and the chilli powder reduced to a quarter of a teaspoon.
