The korma style is like all other braising procedures in that the meat or vegetable is initially cooked energetically or singed utilizing a high hotness and afterward subjected to long; abate cooking utilizing clammy hotness and at least included fluid. The pot may be fixed with batter amid the last phases of cooking.
The korma can make utilization of a strategy called bagar: later in the cooking, extra flavors are blended with warmed ghee and after that joined with the sauce framed by the braising; the container is then secured and shaken to discharge steam and blend the contents.
