Simmer for about 1 About 10 minutes before serving, squeeze the saffron strands in their bowl to get the most colour out of them then add in, with the milk. Add the cream, fresh coriander and salt to taste. Garnish with lemon juice if liked.


1) Coriander. You may know it as "cilantro or Chinese parsley" 2) Cassia bark. Similar to cinnamon but with a sweet musky fragrance. 3) When frying the spices use a gentle heat as they are easily burnt!!

True kormas ar spicy, not hot, and a Moghul creation. Their special feature is a creamy sauce with nut and safron. They can be made with chicken (my favourite), duck, lamb, beef or mutton and should be served with plain or pullao rice.
