How to make Badaam Korma
To prepare this delicious recipe, take a pot over medium flame and boil water in it. Add the lamb cubes to the pot and blanch them for a couple of minutes. Meanwhile, soak the garlic in 1/2 cup of water and keep the water for later use. Then, wash the meat pieces in cold water and keep aside.
Now, take a pan over medium flame and add ghee to it. When the ghee is a little hot, add the meat along with green cardamoms, garlic water, cloves, cinnamon stick, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring frequently.
Fry the meat till it turns light brown and then, add water. When the meat is tender and a little water is remaining, take it off the pan and allow it to cool down.
While the meat cools down, pour the blanched almonds into a mixer and blend it into a paste. When the meat has cooled down, pour the almond paste over it along with the fresh cream. Toss them together so everything is evenly coated.
Now, return the mixture to the pan over a low flame and allow it to simmer for a couple of minutes while stirring frequently. Cook till it's heated thoroughly.
