What is Mughal Cuisine?
Mughal cuisine is a blend of Indian, Persian, and Central Asian culinary traditions that developed during the Mughal Empire. It is known for its rich and aromatic dishes, elaborate preparation methods, and use of exotic spices and ingredients.
Some of the popular Mughal dishes include biryanis, kebabs, curries, and kormas, which are often made with tender meats such as lamb, goat, chicken, and beef.
Mughlai chicken is a korma-style preparation. The word "korma" translates from Urdu as "braise" or "cooked in a pot", describing the long cooking times that achieved meltingly tender meats in rich, glossy sauces.
