Shahi Lamb/Mutton Korma is a very delicious Indian recipe it’s a curry dish which has mild spicy flavour. In India, everyone makes this dish in their own way, so I made this recipe in my own way. And believe me this Lamb korma is not only looked good, it tastes equally good. Usually “korma “dish made with lamb or Indian goat or with Chicken. “Shahi” word came from Mughal food cooking style. This dish is not so much spicy like another Indian curry. I hope my Shahi mutton korma will inspire you to cook.
