This is the best Korma recipe, it's very close to what you would get at an Indian Restaurant. Thanks soooo much

Absolutely beautiful. The best recipe I have found for a korma. The smells of all the spices whilst preparing it are amazing. This is the only korma recipe I will be using from now on.

Replaced the cream with natural plain yogurt and did not add cardamom pods or cloves because I didn't have them and the flaked almonds because I do not like lumps lol... also added 4 cloves of garlic instead of 3 and 1 tsp of garam masala, delicious!
