Chicken Korma ( Succulent Chicken Cooked In White Gravy)

Korma is a white creamy curry preparation that has its roots in Mughlai Cuisine In India. It has a slight sweet taste to it. Perfect chicken dish for people who cannot take hot Indian food. Chicken korma is on the menu of almost every North Indian restaurant in India. I have tried to replicate the restaurant taste through this recipe. Do try cooking this and share your thoughts and suggestions on how can the dish be improved.
