Steenbergs Organic Korma Curry Powder is Steenbergs attempt to recreate this classic from the repertoire of Moghul Indian cuisine. The Korma originated from Persia, then the Korma was developed further in the Islamic courts of the Moghul Emperors during the 16th to 19th centuries. Traditional kormas are rich dishes, using lots of expensive spices and nuts - cardamom , nutmeg , saffron and nuts - mixed into a rich sauce using yoghurt.
