Whole spices

  • 1 black cardamom (bari elaichi)

Ground spices

  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp green cardamom powder
  • ½ tsp white pepper
  • ½ tsp garam masala powder


  • ½ kg chicken
  • ½ cup water or more

Cashew Paste

  • ½ cup coconut milk or ¼ cup cream
  • 12 cashew or white almonds, more to garnish
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut optional
  • 2 tsp kewra water


  • In a pan heat oil and fry whole spices for 1 minute and let the spices crackle. 
  • Immediately, add onion paste and fry the onion paste for 2-3 minutes until its color changes and the onion water dries.
  • Add the ground spices and give it a stir. Add chicken and stir-fry until it changes its color and you see some golden marks on it.
  • Add water, and cover the pot. Cook the chicken on medium heat for 15 minutes or until tender.
  • Take cashew, cream, desiccated coconut, and yogurt in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add the blended white puree to the cooked chicken.
  • Stir and simmer the chicken for 5 minutes or until you see oil separating on the sides of the pan.
  • Garnish with fried onions and cashew halves. Delicious white korma is ready to serve.


    • Chicken: You can make this recipe with meatballs and mutton as well.
  • Onion: Cut onion into the small cube and then blend until smooth.
  • Whole Spices: If you do not have any spice just skip it.
  • Desiccated coconut: Thi ingredients is optional.
  • Cashew: I find cashew blends more easily into paste unlike almonds so I prefer it in curries. You can use almonds to just make sure to blend it well.
  • Cream: I used coconut milk in this recipe. I made the coconut milk, by mixing about 4 tablespoons of coconut powder with ½ cup of water. I've tried this recipe with dairy cream as well it tastes great either way.
  • Yogurt: Use plain unsweetened yogurt.
