Potol Korma Recipe

Potol Korma Recipe

Doi Potol or Potol Korma or Potoler Dorma is a great combination to the soft parwal and very Indian with his unique blend of spices and coconut milk. A kind of fragrant creamy vegetable side dish and I would say quite spicy. Aloo Potol Curry is a perfect side dish for almost any rice and the hot crispy taste makes it a snack by itself.

Potol Korma is prepared with fish or meat or vegetable stew with water or broth, yogurt or cream. All these ingredients are often used together to achieve a rich and hearty dish. There are several ways to make a korma and each produces a different texture and taste. Some are cooked until it forms a thick sauce; other variations in the liquid is reduced to a glaze or form a delicious crust. In the final stage of cooking may be used a technique called Boghar it is to move the pot, closed by the lid, from left to right and from bottom to top.

This allows the liquid to wet the meat, the steam rises and the producing better flavors. A variant of the korma is the pyaaz doh, doh means two and pyaaz onion this name subtends to the fact that we must weigh a double quantities of onions compared to that of meat. One part is cooked for a long time before adding the meat, the other party, grated or powdered, is joined at the end when the meat is almost cooked. The main feature of this area is that the addition of onions at different times produces a texture and taste very special and multifaceted.
