    • Dear Zonia,

      Thanks a lot for bringing it to my notice. You need to add it only if you like the tangy taste more. Yogurt do give a thick gravy. I have now mentioned tomato optional in the post and when it needs to be added if you like it.

      Happy Cooking

    • Dear Dipthi……you have to either go for almond paste or cashew nut paste. If we use coconut paste for Chicken Korma, the taste will be different
