Bahawalpuri White Quorma Recipe

Bahawalpuri White qorma is one of the most popular Mughlai dish. Usually qorma has a rich spicy taste and is floating in red oil, but white korma has a milder. And this Bahawalpur white qorma recipe shows the real heritage of Bahawalpur royalty. This royal Bahawalpuri qorma contains cream which gives it a mild taste; it’s not very spicy kind of qorma which has red oil floating over it. It is way more different from the typical red qorma and it has its unique flavor and royalty because of the dry fruits used in it. The dry fruits give this Bahawalpuri korma a royal effect and taste. Its texture is also different from other korma recipes.
Its one serving has 25% fats, 18% cholesterol and 2% carbohydrates. It’s rich in saturated fats and fibers. You have to walk for 20 minutes after eating this qorma because of the calories it contains. It is good to serve it in dawats and family parties. It’s not a regular dish; Bahawalpuri White qorma is a special dish to be served sometimes.
This dish can be served with naan, stuffed garlic and coriander naan; sesame naan will work best with it. I must say bahawalpuri white qorma is a real essence of Punjab.
