CREAMY KORMA WITH REAL SAFFRON

Korma is a characteristic Moghul dish which can be traced back to the 16th century

Anyone can pull off a Korma. A rich, creamy and flavourful dish. The Korma is a characteristic Moghul dish which can be traced back to the 16th century and to the Mughal incursions into present-day Northern India. The term Shahi (English: Royal), used for some kormas indicates its status as a prestige dish, rather than an everyday meal, and its association with the court.

A true British national. The Royal family, football matches, black tea, British accents, Big Ben, cute black taxi cabs and then there is Tikka Masala! England’s National Dish: Chicken Tikka Masala. The classic Tikka Masala came to even more prominence when a UK foreign secretary proclaimed it to be 'Britain's true national dish'. Nothing better than brightening up a day with tikka on the BBQ. The Indian BBQ tandoori chicken tikka harmonised with the British tikka masala gravy or sauce. A classic example of the way Britain absorbs and adapts to diversity.
