The word Bhuna is used to describe the process where spices are fried gently to bring out their flavors .

You can use the spice powder for 'Tandoori Chicken, Tandoori Paneer/Cauliflower/Potatoes etcs. This is a very easy way to make your own freshly ground Tandoori Spice Powder.

Kebabs are common in Middle Easter cooking, which I always love. North Indian cuisine uses a lots of the same flavors, so they're familiar to me.

Shahi Mutton Korma/Kurma Or Gosht Shahi Korma

Korma has its roots in the Mughlai cuisine of modern-day India and Pakistan.The flavour of a korma is based on a mixture of spices, including ground coriander and cumin, combined with yoghurt kept below curdling temperature and incorporated slowly and carefully with the meat juices. Traditionally, this would have been carried out in a pot set over a very low fire, with charcoal on the lid to provide all-round heat. A korma can be mildly spiced or fiery and may use Lamb, Beef, Chicken, or some kormas combine meat and vegetables such as spinach and Turnip . The term "Shahi" used for some kormas indicates its status as a prestige dish, rather than an everyday meal, and its association with the court.
