This was one of the best kormas I've had so far. Made it with lamb as suggested which needed approx. one hour to cook. I'm not sure if it makes a great difference to use green cardamom pods - that's what I had, and I've never tried black ones. Also I must admit that accidentally I mixed in one cup of vanilla yoghurt - I make my own nut yoghurt and didn't mark the vanilla ones, so one of them went into the korma. It's not a really sweet yoghurt, though, and only a hint of vanilla flavor which blended wonderfully with the other spices. This probably will become my standard for lamb korma. Thanks for posting!
