The expression "korma" means braise, which is inferred from a Turkish word kavuruma which means cooked meat. It is a trademark Moghul dish which could be followed back to the sixteenth century and to the Mughal invasions into present-day Northern India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Traditionally, a korma is characterized as a dish where meat or vegetables are braised with water, stock, and yogurt or cream included.

Naan is an Indian bread recipe which we love to eat. I usually cook this at home, but couldn’t share the recipe here. The taste is bit different from roti and well goes with any spicy gravy. Found that Naan is traditionally cooked in a clay oven called tandoor. I adapted this recipe from Chef Sanjay Thumma and in his video recipe, he explains how to cook it in an oven or even on stove top.

Bonchi Mallung? Actually I am not sure whether we cook Green Beans as mallung in Sri Lanka. Anyway I haven’t tasted any Bonchi Mallung when I was in Sri Lanka. Anyway this recipe is adapted from Kerala Green Bean Thoran Recipe. Kerala recipes are more similar to Sri Lankan recipes. Therefore it is very easy to adapt. This recipe is not exactly the same as Kerala Bean Thoran but I have adapted with Sri Lankan spices and taste. So, enjoy my Bonchi Mallung recipe.

I am a big fan of Chef Sanjay Thumma. Most of his recipes are always with a cooking demonstration/video. This is one of the main reasons for me to like his recipes. Because instructions are very clear. There is another reason. He is a very cheerful person & therefore his cooking videos are very live & attractive.
This Chicken korma recipe is adapted from a recipe of Chef Sanjay Thumma.
