A slight variation on Madhur Jaffrey's Royal Lamb or Beef with a Creamy Almond Sauce also known as Shahi Korma. Having travelled a little in current day Iran this style of curry was not to be found anywhere. Although Lamb is ever popular the closest "curry" style dishes are the Beryani dishes from the Esfahan region. It is likely that these and others were more heavily spiced as the cuisine moved south through Pakistan and India where the delights of Kashmiri, Biryani and Korma style curries were perfected. That's my guess anyway - Enjoy, this is a special one for lovers of silky spiced creme sauces.
