Mutton Badami Korma

Mutton Badami Korma is a traditional dish of Pakistan.  People love to make this royal meat dish on special occasions like Eid, parties and wedding ceremonies. Mutton Badami Korma is usually served with nans, chapatti or sheer maal. These are special types of loaves or breads in Pakistan.

People love to try this dish with lots of varieties. Some like it with beef, some with chicken or some love to make this with mutton. If you like mild spices then you can use 2 tsp. chili powder instead of 4 tsp. Even you can make white Korma if you don’t like spicy dishes. Just replace red chili powder with the ground black pepper.
