Instant Korma – quick to make, tasty to eat..


Searching for recipes, that are quick to make with ready at hand ingredients, is one of my needs and hobbies.

Browsing the Net I came across this dish. First I read the title as Instant Karma and did a double take. Karma and recipes? The ‘Instant’ appealed and I took a second look.

Closer inspection made me see it as Korma, the general accompaniment to many a preparation like chapati dosa or poori.

Poring over the ingredients I saw it would suit me fine indeed.

                                                Let’s get cracking regarding how it is done and that too – fast.

Now you are ready to Go!

Pour oil in a frying pan. Add the bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves and fennel seeds preferably in the same succession.

Next put in the chopped onions, add salt, garlic and green chilies.

Saute for two or three minutes till the onions get pink. Add the tomatoes.

Continue frying for another two or three minutes. Add turmeric and sambar powder while frying.

Add half a cup of water and allow it to come to a boil.

Mix the besan flour with water and stir gently to see that lumps don’t form.

Add a little water if required and allow the mixture to come to a boil.

Remove from stove and garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve on to plate and eat hot with Dosa, Chappati or Idly.
