What Is Korma?

With its origins in India, korma is a dish of braised meat or vegetables that are cooked together with cream, broth and spices to form a thick gravy-like curry sauce. Our meat-free version is made with sautéed mushrooms and zucchini, coconut milk, curry spices and ground almonds all served over aromatic Success® Basmati Rice.
